In Our Lives

Assimilation or death
Which one is best
Alive or dead
How can the living
Wrap their heads around
The difference
The concept of a breath
Or even if not taking one
When we’re not breathing
We have no choice
Awake or dreaming
Sleeping forever
Starkly awake
Scuffling through life
With a head held at halftime
To remain or to escape
To take a step forward
Or to wait
We could also choose
To be awake
For the first time
In our lives
