Death.. it’s all around..
The grip so tight it leaves the air dry.. the breath doesn’t come easy
The sting of it all can be paralyzing..
reality sets in..
ever so vulnerable..
fear, pain, sadness, loneliness..
Overwhelming thoughts bring you to your knees
You can’t escape it
You can’t beat it..
We hold on tighter – so afraid..
hearts pounding so loud
It awakens you back to the present..
It is beating – You are living
You are loving
Life is all around
moments are alive
Your mind screams live it with passion
knowing it’s all unknown
Life is such a gift..
from the moment we cry out with air filling our lungs to the last breath we take as we slip away to peaceful slumber..
Death is not the end
For they live on within you..
breathe in deep
taste the sweetness of it all
and exhale that spark of life on all those around you..
