upon a time

a life began

but what if

life could last

longer than a time

it’s said a lifetime can

if you knew you’d never die

would you try to end your life

or would you just die to learn

the way to live, the way to love

give, forget time, forgive

forget, forgive, give

give love, live

you’d then discover

life much longer

than the life

that began

upon a time
