Not Chosen

Not Chosen
by Moishe Kaufman

Not sought out, not chosen
take from life all it can give
In the blink of an eye
everything passes by

Seek no tomorrow, seek no friends
this day alone belongs to you
grasp, take without concern
before life slips away

Laugh at laws, morality,
they’re merely papers, pay no heed
written by human vampires
To Hell with them!

You’ll not live, not enjoy
know this now
in the blink of an eye
you’ll die anyhow.
