Can’t weigh it up
Those intent on wringing joy from life, dependence free, living healthily, suffer the most dreadful plights and, despite the will to live and fight, still die in trauma and quite desperately,
while others who just cannot find the will
to fight blights, and often carefully concealed or socially acceptable dependencies, live on –
despite a cowardly compulsion to cut short, short lives
and still as if the devil loves the irony – survive.
