Breathing

Has my heart fallen into the pits of dispair

or have I still yet to learn the basic functionings of breathing

Must I vouch for love for the sake of others as I

Myself stir, stranded on the shores betwixt the paths of the Loved

and Forgotten

To Whom do I Owe applause for such simple acts of kindness for

Allowing my eyes to be unveiled within this prison

For

My heart has learned to soar through such pits from disarming its traps

But

Occaisonaly

I dip for a moment deeper than expected

For I have still yet to Learn the basic functions that call for a single

Breath

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
Our world
