the circle of life

somebody help me
accept the circle of life

as the elastic tightens around my waist
and my skin stretches
to the point of snapping
can i remember that sometimes a squirrel just scampers into the road and gets crushed
that nothing is really ever destroyed
can i resist the urge to title and file away
my conversations with God?

i wish i could just lower my fist from the air
and try and experience life on life’s terms

and maybe just maybe
see the world a little bit differently
because of it
