TOWARD THE FUTURE

When you live longer,

how will you develop?

With more time,

how will you spend it?

When you are larger,

how will you mark the earth?

With better food,

will you eat more wisely?

 

I have tasted Death

through her visits.

She has worked through my system,

and changed me.

But your road is vast

 

even if they waste you,

even if they limit you,

even if you subscribe too often

to their nonsense.  In your loss

you’ll see.

 

When you live longer,

toward what ends will you work?
