simultaneous (adj).

here is what there is to say about the lost and the living:

are we not both
saved and
being saved

are we not both
cracked and
healing

are we not both
tied and 
free to go

are we not both
burdened and
light

are we not poor
in our wealth
but perhaps rich
in health
in vision
in hope
in Love

at any given time
are we not
incredibly confused
and also
incredibly lucky?

Scoop up your mess and
put it out in the yard
all of our closets look the same. 

Are we not all
trying to get to work on time
and
waking up tired
and
buying coffee for a lover
and
feeding the children
and 
asking questions with no answers
and
making a life
and a name
and 
revelling
in how beautiful
this all makes the task of breathing?
