A Few Questions

Some people turn into stone,
Others turn into gold
Does that make any difference,
Save when they are sold?

Some birds die in silence
Some while they sing
Does that matter anyway
To bells that never ring?

Some are born to rule
And others to be ruled
Does that change the lives
Of those born to be fooled?

Some portraits talk of life
Others talk of death
But do they carry the scent
Of the painter’s breath?

Some rivers meet the sea
Some dry up midway
Does that change the course,
Of words that we say?

We think of those who win
We think of those who lose
But do we ever really think
Of those who refuse to choose?
