Poem: "Breathing Through Eternity"

This poem came out of the 100th [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam in April 2021. It was inspired and sponsored by [personal profile] nsfwords. It also fills the "Children / birth" square in my 4-4-21 "Aspects" card for the Genderplay Bingo fest.


"Breathing Through Eternity"


To exist is
to breathe.

Everything is
a cycle, a circle
without end.

Breathe in,
breathe out.

Everything is
connected,
and nothing
is severed.

The world is one.

Breathe in life,
breathe out death.

There is no beginning
and no end; it is all
one long journey.

Die out of spirit,
be born into flesh.

Dance your way
through the days
of your life.

Die out of flesh,
be born into spirit.

Prepare for death
as you would
prepare for birth,
for they are one
and the same.

Breathe in,
breathe out.

Whatever comes,
remember to breathe.
