"I Want to Live"

by Jeph Johnson


I want to live
Right up until I die
No more
No less
Imagine just a few seconds longer
Or two fewer?
It's not productive
I'm invincible until I'm not
Then those living,
You all take over everything I was!
And maybe you can become
Or less
After I'm gone too!
Worrying is futile,
Even now. While I'm still hanging around.
But especially afterwards.
Because then it's impossible!
