To Life

To give up on life
while it flows through your veins
is the one true sin
the greatest pain

So take yet one more deeper breath
and reach for one more star
Feel the blood flow through your flesh
and thank the powers that be - you are

integral to the whole that brings
each entity to speak, to sing
in rhythm with the universal tide
that echoes through the star-strewn sky

and dare to be
all that you were meant to be
a spirit flying free

a spark, a flame, a fire burning
brighter for the pain endured
Quench the thirst, appease the yearning
that grows within the life secured

Unravel every thread that binds
your soul in the limits of time
Allow the tapestry to grow
into a work of art to show

the multitude there is a way
to transcend the death of day
Give it all you have to give
and live
