Lessons from the black death

This breath
Is for always

This heart, too
Never ticks down
Like an unwinding watch

Until it does
Because everything stops

Eventually

Immortality the lie
We whisper to ourselves
The moment before sleep

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  2. I love the “never….until it does”
    because it always does.
    because immortality is the lie.

    but we all just want one more night…..just once more to wake up.
