Fleeting Breath of Life

    Fleeting Breath of Life

    The candle lit-
    illumination fleets
    upon the walkway;
    this fear deters
    all logical thought:
    I am blind,
    I cannot see.
    Voice plaintively pleads,
    "Will you release me today-
    absolve my grief?
    My spirit is worn,
    how lonely I feel,
    with miles ahead
    and darkness behind;
    my steps are uneven,
    in unison of my heartbeats-
    it is time to fly.
    Wings unfold,
    metaphysically perfect.
    Raised in gratitude
    to light of moon:
    blessed are thee
    my secluded brother.
    Lift me up
    to fly from earth,
    never to touch
    her cushioned ground.
    This bitter rage
    steals my soul;
    I will not give into this hate.
    Wings carry me
    far from this darkness-
    abscess of my mind.
    I will not hold back
    nor debase
    the facts of troubled circumstance.
    Be this temporary
    or eternity;
    my heart's untroubled,
    I fall into life's embrace;
    peace be mine
    for perhaps another day.

    Lovely write! It's very difficult to read with that particular font and size, but I was able to get through it. Beautiful and full of hope!

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
