An alternative to acceptance

There must be
some alternative
to this placid acceptance,
this resignation;
some way that we
could exhibit the strength
of these wise cats
who watch over us,
and instead of sinking
sadly into inevitability,
could sit upright,
perched on the edge of becoming
and declare this space to be our own
if only for a moment:
then the fear might finally
leave our eyes...
