Life in Contemplation

Nursing sore hip

Tripped on mound’s hip

Of spent life’s grainy drip


Eyeballed life

As it toyed, playing

Cat mouse with me


Two protagonists

Trying to best

One another


I now witness

My physicality

In life’s duality


Ignominies happen

Not to me, in rehash

Only to this heap of ash


Spiritedly I pray

Let my wits stay

In this power play


Life thinks it’ll best me

I think I’ll outwit it

Enlightened in spirit


Time will tell

Who felled..

First fell
