We live another day – Poetry

the day has passed the mayan lied
whispered still amongst the crowds
the date was set for 21
but yet we’re still alive
not shattered, crumbled
or breath not breathed
not lying underground
not wasted body
with eyes that glaze
or hearts that have no beat
not lifeless forms of
our ourselves but
breathing and complete
with prophecies from
the past that gave uncertainty
 rest easy now
no harm has come
we’ve passed the date
of twenty one
pay homage to all humanity,
for we have lived
and we are free
