Response to Paul


Die to the self?


Surely not,


I wish to will


I am an intellectual


 


Outward looking, me?


Too much of my life to see.


No compromise to be.


 


Pour myself out?


Comfort zones shout:


Willed too hard to get here!


 


Alas, I refuse to die.


My best life to deny.


Here,


I don’t fear.


 


Rather, hereafter, eternal death.


Now,


My will prevails in every breath.
