So you think you can breathe.

So you think you can breathe
In and out
Rapid and slow
Paused then methodical
Hushed and silent
Who started the beat
Did you do that
Was it your idea
Where did it come from
The origins of life
Your life
You just know the second it started,
but you don’t know the second it stops.
Or how many million breaths it takes before the end.
Or the number of hairs on your head.
The minuscule detail.
The perfect form.
The precise moment it finishes.
For as surely as I came into this world I will go out of it.
Just like my breath.
In and out.
Just like pro creation.
In and out.
Just like food and water.
In and out.
Just like sleep.
In and out.
Just like work.
In and out.
Just like knowledge.
In and out.
Just like money.
In and out.
Just like pleasure.
In and out.
Just like life.
In and out.
So you think you can breathe
What are you breathing for?
