The Secret of Life & Death

Imagine being a child at the beach:
You pick up some water from the sea in your cupped palms
& you cry out,
"This is my water!"

Your friends, naturally,
try to knock the water
out of your palms --

&, inevitably,
they succeed.

Do you waste your time now
crying & moaning over your lost
handful of sea-water?

Or do you just go back into the waves,
crouch down,
& scoop up some more?
