A Better Resurrection

Poem By john tiong chunghoo

there is a larger life
than life, my life
and i am glad to be a part
i am a torso that speaks out
when the water dries out
i would beat a step out
when the axis ceases to turn
i too would beat a step out
when the plants all
make their exit
i too would follow suit
this creature called earth
- the trees, river, air,
humans, animals -
the laws that govern it
run this physique too
god turns the earth
and pumps our hearts
