Epiphany of a Pessimist

Life is the frail branch of an Oak

Dangling above a voracious flame

Time is its only companion

CRACK

And biggest tormenter

The occasional gentle breeze pacifies the branch's paranoia

Temporarily

Every spark looming below reminds it why each breeze is important

Their is no choice but to cherish them

SNAP
