Jump Ship

Not asked to be here

Neither did I ask

Choice is as choice dictates

I choose


Choose life!

Choose life?

Life is, happens, passes


What of this life?

The goal? The prize?

The end



To jump ship

Or to be pushed?

Never to be or not to be


To never have been


This light these sounds

This heart

To sleep perchance to scream

And wake


From the dream that was life

Did I jump

That sinking ship

Or do I?
