Poem why do you live longer?

Poetry

Someone asked me, “why do you live longer?

My answer

for family hugs

for my sister who needs me

to meet more human nature

for a glass of caramel latte

for a plate of fried rice

for KFC chicken skin

for promises that I haven’t been fulfilled

to make friends with destiny

“Why do you live longer?” she kept asking

“is it not because you have already been born? so you have to live your life even if you don’t like it”

Why do you live longer?
