Here I live

Here I live

Countless specks make, a globule, for a while
Accumulated dust, a settlement, new life
Like fungus on a bread loaf, a jungle for a while
Organisms thrive, a new world, new life


Width of a forefinger, a track in dust, I write
Characters self made, a track of sound, my name
In accumulated dust, to prove myself, a mite
Calculations myriad, to make myself, a name


What I see and hear, I learn to live, I earn
More and more I hoard, till my death, I yearn
Not a speck my own, do I bring, when I come
Not a speck 'I own', can I take when I leave
Accumulated dust, here I live, I die
