"the last breath"

"the last breath"

A Poem by Vincent Esprit FMI

What a moment ...when mortality ...will be no more...




As the winds of life,

My soul gently leads to its inner rest,

I  cease not in this momemt of bliss,

For to rest would impede not thine own,

But that which is me,


And so my soul to the winds of change ignore,

For it knows none but its path to its eyes be glued,

In this vast abys yet everreadily sublime,

It chances not to forsake its heart,


And here at last it sees itself,

In that mystery of life soothingly  pure,

It can nothing do but enshrine this cure,

In its inner quest  to love undure,


This breath that once eluded its grasp,

Is yet so close to its yearning heart,

For in that one instance of glance,

The eternal sought has to it succumbed.

Well, all I can say is when I get ready to check out, I will be thankful, ready and laughing.
where I am going? Only the realms of imagination can say.
It was a long stretch for my soul to get to this unbelievably chaotic and exquisitely beautiful place. But I did, so I am.

This speaks to everyone who will listen the moment we have clarity of thought and vision,.Always we learn to late to benefit us or anyone else.Perhaps it is meant to be.As no mans last words were ever for work. Nor to rule the entire world. Instead they wish they had given to others. As enlightenment is then unfurled. So take time out from your hectic day. Try not to run so fast.
Life is not a race to be won. And sadly the music won't last.
I give your poem a 97 and that is the highest I have ever bestowed upon another.!

Well done. It shows the limits of mortality, and how one day breath won't even be able to catch itself. The descriptive words really help the reader to ponder the poem more deeply.

With every breath I take we are one, my Soul connects with His Maker. All we have to do is love Him and wait.
A awesome poem, thank you for sharing.
