Life… Life

Everyone lives and then they die.
Life is important if it gives something to change things;
not important if it ‘takes’
because when we all die, then who and what we leave behind needs to be something that changed the way things were before we came.
There is no other point.

This poem was written after knowledge was gained about the possibility of two colleagues dying of cancer.
