Why the good die young

If the good die young
then what’s the essence of good?
Is it but drops of water
in the mouth of the thirsty
so much that they yearn
but never completely get quenched?

Is the objective to create a balance
between good and evil,
so the people never completely drift
and become numb to the goodness in good
that one day they wake
and find good as plain as white sheet;
totally oblivious to the feel-good that arises
from feeling good; created by the good.

Perhaps the good die young
just like the music changes rhythm and pitch
to create the punctuation
that highlights a clear distinction
between good and evil
so much that the choice is made obvious
for the people to choose.

Inspired by Nujabes‘ work: Luv(sic)- the series. RIP.
