Embracing Mortality

As we embrace
mortality without
awareness of
the many moments
lost to fear,
anger
and doubt,
we search
for love
in the eyes of
an affectionate world.
Lost we are,
expecting that
the pervading
potentiality
of a thought to
transform the meaning
and precision
of time
will guide us,
but we flow
in vacillation,
neither opening
our eyes
nor taking
a stand,
we want only
the gentle touch
of a loving confidant.
Caring no more
for immortality,
we lose ourselves
in human longing.
