  Breathing

unaware

surviving

maybe alive

maybe not

but still breathing

Breathless

aware

In need of air

alive

maybe not

but still breathing

Air

never seen

never touched

but always been my source of life

tasteless

but tastes my lungs

runs in my veins

lets me  feel life

and then they tell me

its greenery

its gold

its things that are finite

that keep me alive

its degrees

its education

its my soulmate

its things you can touch and show

its things they can see and know

its things you can frame on the wall

that keeps me alive

and I tell them

no matter where you go

no matter how much you have to frame

no matter how much you glitter and shine

all you need to do

to be alive

is keep breathing
