Poem: Morning Prayer 

We are born
with no say in the matter
The biggest decision of our life
made with no consultation or
consideration for the fixes and scrapes
I took a big chance
getting out of bed this morning
I don’t like the sound
of a beating heart
with all its sucking and clatter
And by the way
I want my hair back
We’re in it now
so let’s not kid ourselves
There are limits
Failure is an option
The end like the beginning
is certain
So be of good cheer
We are blameless
Every one
