Undefinable living

Our lives

can somehow

be contained

in a single word.

Life. 

The basis of existence

resides in one syllable. 

Yet the perplexity

of this noun

and adjective,

has resulted

in an entire paragraph

of contradictions. 

Why do we use

singularity 

to sum up

the thing we all

breathe,

blink, 

and cry for?

So many of us

find simplicity

to be the easiest route.

Yet my words

fall like tears

on cotton pillows. 

Without force,

or exertion.

I do not wish

for my living

to be defined

in a word. 

I want more. 

Life.
