A Better Resurrection - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

there is a larger life
than life, my life
and i am glad to be a part
i am a torso that speaks out
when the water dries out
i would beat a step out
when the axis ceases to turn
i too would beat a step out
when the plants all
make their exit
i too would follow suit
this creature called earth
- the trees, river, air,
humans, animals -
the laws that govern it
run this physique too
god turns the earth
and pumps our hearts

    Inspired by Sylvia Plath, but written in your own unique style. Very eloquent, John.

    Kindest regards,

    Sandra
