Constructing Values

One by one we construct
values
out of nothing but memory
and experience
some hidden inside 
innate desires to live
we call good
and darkly night sounds
of a nature that chills
our minds with death
as natural as life
yet we build our values
and my values
sometimes thinking a Creator
is like us
yet at night we know 
that death is the food 
of life
a cycle that we clothe
with myth
so that life stripped bare
is hidden from view
in modesty we value
life to be
beauty we call it
the surface
decorated 
to dazzle our eyes
as 
it
must
do.
