The only definitive of life.

The only definitive of life I can give is death
to be termed alive
would mean that death is possible
as far as an inanimate object
incapable of death.

Bacteria it isn’t animal like
incapable of thought like you or I
although a complexity of decisions
is plausible
because life knows to grow
and it inherits the ability
to grow
it’s living
because it can reach death
which determines life
which for us
it triggers morality
because we debate life
although we know if it’s killing us
it must die.

An unborn life
in a womb
is capable of death
which in terms it is living
rather we wrestle within the thought
of which life
shall stride on
if it is unable to survive
outside of its incubator
then why do we struggle
with the morality
it is life
it is alive
only in the womb
do we neglect the incubator
as if it is only a box of warmth
rather than flesh itself?

Thanks for reading.
