To Choose

To choose a Path
which goes
the Life Giving Powers
of this Earth,
whether by Accident
or on Purpose,
leads one and one's kind
to Death.
It can happen fast,
in an instant.
Or it can happen slowly,
so slowly that
one cannot see
their demise.
that burden
may be placed fully 
on our Heirs.
If we listen closely,
we may hear
their voices:
"Nice gift,
Dad, Mom,
Grandma, Grandpa."
were you
To choose a path
which goes
with the Life Giving Powers
of this Earth
honors Gifts
of Creation and Life,
Sacred Gifts
of the Divine.
There are
no guaruntees.
But this surely brings
a promise
the current Path
cannot provide.
