A gesture in the face of infinity! (for Nwagbo)
I live my life in a moment
Treasuring everything that comes to be.
I cherish every breath and vision
From endless sky to sparkling sea;
From the chords of planets
To the sound of peoples’ glee;
The flowers, birds and creatures
From elephant to bee.
I strive to make it better
Not content with what I see
For our endeavours on this planet
Usually end in catastrophe.
I’ve only got a short while
But death does not worry me,
For I know, when my life is measured –
A gesture in the face of infinity!
