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...
