To Live With Joyful Love

To Live With Joyful Love

How can we live well in walled paradise
while surrounded by those who seek our death?
While both optimists and pessimists will
employ energy of action to live
through different moral guides of attitude,
making their own lives a heaven or hell,
they will both be struck down by blade of death
with the same permanent finality,
dissolved from the solidity of being,
so whether we live with joy or despair,
starving in greed or feasting in largesse,
we will all cease to exist, thus I choose
to live with joyful love for every creature
who strives to savor fleet pleasures of life.
