Can't Covet Life

by David Reese-El

Life ends as easy as it begins,
people live so they can die.

The cold embraces the dead;
like heat does the living.

Life is a system of many things.
Like living, walking, talking,
loving, breathing and touching 

Watching the sun rise
or set behind,
America's Mountain.

Life seeps through our minds
as does the rain between 
the fingers...

Life is---taken away,
before we even knew 
we had it.

Can Thou Covet Life Forever.
