Poetry Corner: Made Of
I am made of chances, opportunities,

Of molecules and atoms,

Of false chaos collapsing

Into order and civilization


I am not self-made.

I am everything-made.

Every life that lived before

Exists now inside me.


Everything that existed,

Does exist and will exist,

Has made my existence.

I change with the world.


I am made from war and earth.

I am made from arctic freeze and soda pop.

I am made from thought and life.

I am made from you and everything.
