Rather Be... Than Be.. Poem by Teddy temple


Rather be a superb meteor
In which every atom of you is in a magnificent glow
Than a sleepy permanent planet that just exists

Rather be ashes
As they are remains of what have been consumed
Than dust that is still in its natural form

Rather be you spark
As it can burn in a brilliant blaze
Than be stifled by dry-rot

Rather be what you were created to be
Than be another creature that don't understand what living is
For the proper function of a man is to live not to exist
