Life is constant motion
yet unwavering and still
life defies direction
yet bends to the will

Life is a shimmering prism
an expanse vast and deep
nothing left to lose
nothing here to keep

Life is a singular moment
just this one tiny breath
separating then from now
existence from death

Life is one long journey
moments fleeting and rare
life is an open question
left hanging in the air

Life is always measured
priceless but at a cost
never truly broken
never really lost
