Accomplishing The Task Of Nature

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

To live is the best remedy there is,
Than to decide to intellectualize the passing...
Of a life we 'assume' affords us time to live.

It is easier to observe the changing of the seasons...
Since we anticipate the dates that this should happen!
As the aging of a tree is disguised by its bark!

And the process of this goes unnoticed.
Although it still adapts to its mission.
To do it ignored!

It lives to do what is expected.
Leaving the decision on how this should be done...
To its creator!

And we have yet to decide,
Whether or not this is a wise choice...
To make!

As if we are not a part of this undertaking.
As if we are the center of it...
To command when this is done!

And...
Although we may witness others go through this,
We do not perceive ourselves...
As falling leaves.
Completing a cycle that has to be replenished!
Accomplishing the task of nature.
And satisfying the 'will' of The Almighty!
