The key to not sweat the small stuff
is to think about death often
Mortality has a way of enveloping irritability
suffocating it with the weight of reality

You’re worrying about a dodgy email
when you remember one day everyone you love will die
Car accident, cancer, cold, and cuts
Death has grit, persistence, guts

It’s bitter and joyful
this impermanence
The sun keeps rising above
You smile and hug everyone you love
