Breath

In the stillness of thy mind
Let a righteous wind blow
To give unto thee
The second breath of life,

For the trials of the womb
Ushered forth the first breath

And so too…

Shall the trials of life
Escort the coming of a second birth.

Thy past transgressions then
Shall be forgiven thee

Like a mother
Who forgives her child
For the pangs of labor,

For it was the first breath of life
That gave unto thee mortality
And, caused thee to see beyond the womb,

Yet, shall the second breath
Cause thee to see
Beyond temporal existence,
And notice thy place in eternity.

‘Tis then that ye shall truly breath again
And lay thine eyes upon my face,
To remember oh so well—

Why ye chose to breath at all.
