Origins

Patience runs dry in these notched bones
When difficulties threaten to consume me
I remember what’s inherently abundant
iron
carbon
sulfur
and oxygen
The cosmic leftovers of explosions billions of years old
The elements that combine and become
Are reminders of fixed impermanence
Bodies that live and love
Are part of a constant flux
So, I surrender what I fear and what I lack
With the understanding that Time is taking its time on me
