Wasting Away

Do you think at home,
Nestled in your armchair.
About the world above,
And within?

Consider yourself
A needle in the haystack
Or the chance to win
the lottery.

Take into account
What you are,
And what you were
Is nature's property.

Realize all thoughts
Like this one
Will account for nothing
When you're long gone.

Your life is like
A blink to the universe.
Then why do you sit there,
while it wastes away?
