Do Not Insult the Being

In the end, the end’s not dead.
The moon’s not dead. Mars isn’t.
Asteroids and comets aren’t.

They are. They exist. They move
Around as they must, and who
Among you isn’t moved thus?

Do not insult the not dead
By saying they’re not living
So far, as if mere being

Were lesser stage to living
And living must be progress.
Don’t pity the molecules

That used to live for being
Only molecules again.
Pity they went through living.
