BREATHE: a poem


I’ve replaced belief,
With the experience of living…
Both Grace and I had met at
The top of the mountain;
And It was there,
Through the soul
That an endlessness
Would birth an eternal
My relationship with the
Would melt the pain
Felt and carried
By the young boy;
Who once was cast
At the center of the sea,
Chained by fear;
Into a methodical dance
Where both eternity
And I;
Would fade
Back into one…
So why wait for a symphony to
Lead you into the sky,
When you can become the music,
That breathes new life…
For the resurrection of
Is to become you…
It is there,
That you shall become the stars
Become the poem;
And as they read you
walk through life;

that you hold the key.
to a deathless life…
Become the night
Breathe as the night;
Breathe until you become the
Light of day…
Breathe hope into the heart,
That has become an apsis
To the body;
And an abyss
For the dark…
Breathe and face yourself;
Allow yourself to feel the depth of pain,
That lives inside of you…
Breathe until you no longer
Fear death;
Breathe until both death and
Life become a
A story actualizing itself
The narration;
Of immeasurability…
Breathe until
You feel the echo
Of the unending pulse
Descend back into
Breathe until the only thing that
Is left,
Is love…
