“One Breath.”

The enigma of the human heart is astounding
Its dexterity amidst the tumult life dishes cannot be explained
We are all strong, even the weakest of us
Perpetually enduring and reaching ahead
Through the dirt shovelled on our heads
Never allowing ourselves a complete burial
Always digging our way out
Always dusting off to climb to something better.

As deeply as we love and as monumentally as we hurt
We are all the same
One blood
One heart
One breath
Running this race before we are forgotten forever
So hold me now, while you can
Because tomorrow will no longer forgive.
