Shall we come up for air?

I bought a rather large tarp
and I had set out to use it
for the intended purposes
although in my own way
as I held on to it I thought
it needs to be bigger
and I looked around
asking for help
buying several more
and with more hands
we stitched several together
and I thought
it needs to be larger
large enough to bury us all under
because as we are sperate in life
fighting to be above rather than below
we all reach death
uniting us all
because humans are never invincible
and as we gather beneath
we look in and out
and realize we fought so hard
stepping upon bodies
and still this is how we end
gathering below tarps
thinking it’s rather nice
without the rain reaching us
but for how long
shall we come up for air
and accept that all shades feel pain
and all shades feel joy
and all shades suffer to be more
and begin to connect
rather than repel each other.

Thanks for reading.
