Life

How do we breathe

And how do we live

As life’s cold wind

Blows against us?

Do we continue

To curse the ink of darkness,

Ignoring the flickering,

Slender fleeting light of hope?

What draws between us,

May it be whooshed away,

Free and unfettered.

May we not swear at the wind

But glide with it,

Taking us to places

That yet exist in our minds.
