Life Is One Long Breath
Poem By Amber Smith
Life is one long breath
But, it can quickly leave- What will you have left?
Start with a rise and end with a fall
Your chest inflates and then becomes small
The invisible entering; swirling around
Then it is held after a faint sound
What seems like an enternity...
Yet is utter tranquility...
How is it to be described?
That feeling of peace after you've cried
The tention building; rising
Held tight, waiting for the perfect timing
You begin to feel the pain; Suffication
But, it's held stronger with full dedication
Panic, Tears Flow, Eyes Widen
Who will you stand with? Choose your siding!
One thought pops into mind, 'This is the end! '
Thinking cluttered, 'I want to make my mends! '
Then your racing mind crashes
Every last picture of your life flashes
And in that long breath- is your life...
Happiness, Pain, Laughter, and Tears.
You sob and try to switch gears
Your heart slows, your mind becomes silient
'That wasn't at all violent? '
As the pressure begins to lift- the invisible slowly climbs out!
Like water leaving a spout
Slowly everything begins to tingle
Your blood seems to stop and mingle
Your chest falls
The you see it......white walls!
You hear the ringing
The sound of a new begining!
With a turn of your head - a gaze behind you...
You whisper 'Someday you'll find life to be one long breath too! '
