I WANT TO LIVE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I shall be all too still some day
Last Line: My bit of ashes to the dust.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Carpe Diem


I shall be all too still some day
But now I choose an equal chance
To strum the scale of ecstasy
And sound the gamut of romance.

I seek no cushioned way to love
I want to suffer, if I must
To be consumed, and then to give
My bit of ashes to the dust.
