One Shot

Sometimes I carry an
indescribable sadness
that we only get
one shot at this
thing called life.

Just one.

To do everything
we dream of,
fix all those
issues that pull us
toward them,
to love all those
glorious people
we connect with.

We can’t do it justice
and this feels
overwhelming.

I don’t know whether
to run around screaming
in frustration,
an outburst of my
unfathomable love
for this world;

or to lie down
and die,
right here.
