Epiphany of a Pessimist

Life is the frail branch of an Oak

Dangling above a voracious flame

Time is its only companion


And biggest tormenter

The occasional gentle breeze pacifies the branch's paranoia


Every spark looming below reminds it why each breeze is important

Their is no choice but to cherish them
