if we were capable of saving ourselves

don't you think we would have?

or do we try so we'll earn the right

to lose the lives we try to save?

nothing we do is comprehensive enough

we lack the totality of the All

to do anything at all about anything

including the acts for which we'd atone

though we'd suffer the consequence anyway

and if we were capable of saving ourselves

would we get it right? only if we did so

without thinking it right or correct or pleasing

to our idea of a deity...only if we did for another

without thought for ourselves

yes we've heard this perpetually throughout every crisis

of life and still our error's our only excuse

for try it yet again...unquenchable will to live

that would be no waste could we save ourselves...
