Dodging daggers
I skillfully avert disaster
and Death

Flames burn
finality impending
A little smoke in the lungs
can't keep me down

My survival surprised YOU
not ME
Because nothing has ever kept me down

for long

Too many

roads left to travel
words left to write
lives to touch
flowers to smell
wonders to see
sweetness to taste

To let something incidental
Take me down

Not for very long.

~La Poetic Seamstress~
