Every Breath a Step Into the Darkness

Each day that passes
We shape ourselves and the world in which we exist
All the while
Shaped just the same
Molded to fit
With each new experience a opportunity
To learn and grow
To discover what it means
To be

Every breath we take
Is a step forward
Into a world of shadows
Our perception a light
Bringing illumination and clarity
To what surrounds us
Revealing where we have been
As well as where we are headed

We can never return
To where we have been
But we can apply what we have come to understand
Always seeking to know more
To prepare ourselves
For what is yet to come
Knowing
That each day brings challenges we have not yet overcome
As well as accomplishments we will always hold dear
As the darkness gradually fades
Giving way to stories
Composing our journey
Encompassing our lives
