Never Dead

Staring at the sky above
I lay there
Not a muscle moving.
Alive to the world around
Revealed by my chest.
Every breath that went in
Seemed to bring new life
Washed my mind cast in doubt
To bring peace to a tormented soul

The stars seemed to say
“you are the world
The soul that rules.
Having moved away from the life
You are now saved from death.
They said not a word that hurt
Nor was there any thought,
But you still broke away
From thoughts
That kept you spirit bound.”

Resting in peace
I tug at a thought
Of dying a life never lived
Of wasted years before
Of living a life never dead.
