The Role of Life



The role of life is to react
to change with pain.

Extending till extended.

Beware those who suffer
from the lack of a narrative.

No one can do much by themselves.
Not even be themselves.

What works so assiduously
to constrict our structures?

You threaten me with change,
I parry with repetition.

Continuous partial attention.

When I was young I was a question;
now, I am the answer.
