Mortality - Poem by Pasha Satara

when you think 'more'
& you take a 'tally'
can you combine yrself
into a mortal
who wants more time
& take a quick accounting
of yr life, to find
if you've lived the way
you'd hoped,
or do the concepts of
'mortally' & 'mortality'
override each other?
one is life;
the other is the realization
that life is limited
by the number
of gulps of fresh air you take.

this is not a 'taking'
of the selfish,
this breathing is instinctive,
as natural as birth,
& as necessary as water,
great big swallows of life,
not little birds all aflutter.

& if yr accounting
is unbalanced,
if yr reckoning reeks
of hypocrisy & secrets,
what happens
to yr mortal tally?

what happens
to you mortally?

what happens
to your morality?

what happens
when you reach mortality?

if we don't judge,
if we live simply,
if we take sorrow
gracefully,
if we dance always
in love,
if we, if we, if we.

there is no moral
to this story.

just keep yr third eye
on yr morale.
