Why does your life matter?

Let’s think of this matter like the logical beings we are.
Life is paramount.
It is what we are.
We live and breathe.

Human life.
Animal life
Plant life

Life. 
It is the very nature of our existence.

So why does your life matter?

Why does your life matter so
That you can dare look down on a man
Like yourself walking

Just because you drive?

Why does your life matter so
That you can dare look down on a woman
Like you selling maize

Just because you work at an office?

Why does your life matter so
That you can dare tell your children
Not to play with children like them

Just because they are poor?

When did money become paramount
To life?
When did status become paramount
To life?
When did fame become paramount
To life?
When did fortune become paramount
To life?

Why does your life matter?
Tell me!

When did you become persecutor, judge and executioner
To life?

Did. You. Give. You. Life?
No!
So
Why does your life matter?

We all die!

That car
That house
That bling
Those heels
That bank account

Is nothing!

You will end up cold and 6 foot under

Dead.

With nothing except
Your life to account for.

Why does your life matter?

Think.
Because the next time
You dare look down on someone
Just because you think
You are better than them
Because of money
Or status
Or fame
Or whatever makes you proud

Remember

Cold and 6 foot under isn’t far off.
