Poetry

Live.

The average human being breathes about 24000 times a day.
In and out,
In and out,
In and out,

And in between those breaths…
moments of introspection,
split seconds of revelation,
And in the stillness…
My spirit whispers, “you are alive, let every breath be meaningful…”


You are still here,
You have yet to be bested,
You have overcome every mountain,
Swam through every sea,
And still your lungs pump this divine energy,
A sign that the best is yet to come and you still hold power within…


So what will you do with your remaining breaths,
24000 chances to impact lives,
24000 opportunities to make your life more meaningful,
Every breath a chance to show gratitude for this precious gift…
24000 thousand chances to say “thank you”…
