This morning after reading this i was compelled to write.

i am reminded to breath and allow things to pass

i share this with you because no matter what darkness we all face,

there is peace in knowing we can take that breath together.

Life is in constant motion.

A change in course,

a dip in the road,

a mountain to climb,

a moment that passes.

The essential balance of ebb and flow

must constantly be

juxtaposed between

want and need,

love and hate

build and break.

Thrust sometimes into madness

or left somewhere behind,

the chaos can alter

and evolve into

an independence

a freedom from caged minds.

Life is in constant motion,

it catches us off guard

and forces decisiveness

from deep within

the depth of survival.

Life is in constant motion

i will breathe and allow things to pass.
