Each breath a gift, a moment of sweet release,
the foundation of simple life,
given with the knowledge of potential,
the possibility of meaning found.
Each second of thought, a choice,
a conscious decision to live with purpose,
to move forward with great anticipation,
in the hope of understanding.
Each stumble a pain, a setback,
a reminder we are less than perfect,
a prospect unrealised, an idea considered,
ever seeking the beginning of righteous steps.
Each success a lesson in humility,
to accept we can be what we will,
but remembering from where we have come,
and what likens us to one another.
Each favour a blessing, an earned step within light,
given in the balance of life,
as it unfolds as a consequence of each thought,
each movement in response or with purpose.
Each meaning a building block of understanding,
fathoming the authenticity of experience,
what to embrace or reject in the diversity of reality,
and in the veil of illusions that surround us.
Each breath a gift, to be savoured,
to be embraced in the loving arms of life,
ever-willing to accept pain with joy,
and the path of love beyond the self.
