Breathe: A journey between life and death
Spread the love

When you are alive, it’s your life.

When you are dead, it’s a memory.

It is a journey between life and death..

It’s not just a Breath…

Breath is an emotion for some,

disguise for some,

memory with despair for some.

A Breath is never permanent..

not meant to be forever or stagnant..

Your breath is not just yours ,

You can be somebody’s Breath..

Somebody can be your breath!

For we all are someone’s reason to breathe and feel alive

it’s mine, it’s yours, it’s ours.

Breath is what keeps you and me going..

Sometimes for ourselves,

Sometimes for somebody else!

Breath! It’s a baby’s first cry

or someone’s tear when your life falls apart and you die.

Breath! it can be a sigh of relief..

or a struggle between life and death

it’s a gift to some,

A magical wonder of nature!

Breath is also a countdown

though everybody is on it

but nobody realizes it.

Everyone breathes…

Yet your breath is what gives you a chance to make your life unique!


as it syncs with your heartbeat,

it can define you and your emotions.

For one moment you can be breathing harsh due to your fears..

And then feel breathless the other moment with your unstoppable tears!

Nobody really knows about their first or the last breath.

Strange is this rule of nature! Isn’t it?

Breath is in every soul…

Yet when it leaves your body, so does your soul!

Breath can make you live in this world or take you away from this world…

So let’s make each day a beautiful one, with every passing breath.
