“For The Living”

This life is to die for literally,
tastes of total abandon come but once.
Love not in the past. love eternally,
whether it be real needs or selfish wants.

Existence surely must be protected,
the freedom to breathe the freshest air.
Lack of compassion is now detected,
we must preserve this life for its true heir.

Truly a reason to defend our lives,
to gain the favor of the creator.
If the future of mankind shall survive,
to take one's life brands you as a traitor.

The will to survive comes deep from within,
healthy living takes years of discipline.

Timothy Michael DiVito c1996

I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time.
