Let Live

Let Live

A Poem by Sarah Marie
"

life in rambling

"
Life-
It is fleeting;
The heart
Will cease beating
One faraway day.
The breath
Knows no better
Than to escape the breast
Only to return 
And relieve a desperate soul;
Every turn 
And every corner boasts
Dangers unknown to man,
Ignored by the ignorant
And those who deny death
In pitiful vain. 
Let life live
And leave life to love,
For with every breath,
It nears the final gasp,
Life too capricious a thing
To admit when it will 
Grow weary and fade.
What good is life
When it is not lived in ways
Only the heart can dictate,
In ways only one 
Can dare to comprehend?
It is a personal, sacred thing-
It is to be revered and cherished
While explored and prodded,  
Helpless in the hands 
Of he or she 
Who breathes in each breath.

This is beautiful. It speaks out about how life is so precious. We can't just go along playing it safe forever. We need to live life, play is safe at some corners and take the dangerous jump off the edge at others. Beautiful, Sarah, you've touched me once again
