In full appreciation of life and to honor what has been given as a gift

I hear you and listen to you complain

Your life is insane

There is nothing to gain

You beg and you plea

To die or be free

Yet both do agree

That life is in supply

Your breath cannot lie

You have forgotten that I...

Do not know that you chose to be separate

You are always with me

You occupy the cells in my heart

And the air in my lungs

You are the form and space

The sound and silence

The one in all

It is all inclusive

Never apart

Belonging to everyone

It grows and it shares

Never dividing

Just sharing space


...pieces of everything
