NO FREEDOM IN BREATH

Thoughts of childhood swim in limited freedom
Thinking money, food love give happiness in this lifedom
As time flirts with growth
And conceives maturity through experiences
We get to know
There is no freedom in breath

II
Plants dance with the air
But most breathers live on their deaths
Trees bear weight
Their skins pealed to heal
Their roots uprooted in added healing
Even other trees swallow their peers
Doesn’t it dawn on you
That there is no freedom in breath?

III
Animals make noise
Some happy, others melancholic
But they are future meat in heat
Even between themselves
Raw meat to feed
Those feared hunted for victories
All signs lead
To no freedom in breath

IV
Fishes play hide and seek and leak
Panting in chasings
As some die in odd places
Warm waters boil for the weak
They feed on their neighbours
To live and breathe
While some are removed to be chewed in alien fields
Are you getting the flow?
That there is no breath in freedom?

V
Clouds cry to softhen the earth
Sun heats to harden the earth
Although these come from the same sky
Do you need more proof
That there is no freedom in breath?

VI
The higher the mind
The harder the fight
So know that there is no freedom in breath
Live the struggle
