When Life Happens

I’m on a journey in time and space,
Since we must get from here to there.
So life needs happen, or else we’re the dead.

The orderings of chance draws one to fortunes and feuds;
Points one to glory and gore;
Asking of the man what he’d dare do.

Every moment, a question,
And a demand to control ourselves.
Every moment, we respond,
And we yield to the laws we’ve accepted.
