The choice to be born

_____________________________________

Not that we have not chosen our names
our gender
our mothers and fathers
and our homes.

Not that we have never chosen 
where to be born
what suffering to endure
and the fate that makes us who we are.

But rather that we have never chosen
before all
to come to this life,
to want to be alive!

Where does that desire 
now
come to us from?
And what does it take
to ensure
that we shall never again be
reborn?!
