There are people breathing air I have never tasted
Air that has been recycled and repurposed
to start wars
to blow up birthday balloons
to whisper secrets in lovers ears
Catalyzing life (both literal and figurative)
And the fact I am in this
And this in me
That I may experience so much, no matter how miniscule to the masses
I may never live up to these but I am alive
Oh, G-d! am I alive!
And I want to breathe the air I have never tasted.
