Impulsation

We are driven to do few things.
Have kids, preserve the lineage.
Survive, in order to have kids.

So as far as nature's concerned
Once you've had enough children
you're not needed as a man

And for a woman, once you're past child-bearing
You're on the scrap heap of the genes.

We do of course all die
in the end.

Survival is a relative matter.
Those stillborn in the womb
in retrospect
are not so very different as those who live to a hundred.

They lived.
They died.

Grief is another matter altogether.

The impulse
to survive
to have sex

Both quite petty in the grand scheme of things
aren't they?

Appreciate your life
Love a moment
and then another.
Simple really.
Really simple.
