If We Didn't Consume


Think for a moment if we didn't consume;

If we didn't eat, 

If we didn't drink-


More time on the clock for personal use, 

More accomplished feats,

More seconds to think-


Body more a friend, 

never desperate for energy;

Less grasping deathes, 

Less heaving breaths,

In a tiny jewel of change, 

More shining freedom than the eye can see.
