Just Like That - Poem by The Little Wise Doll

From the life of the living
Comes the breath of the dead.
Fragile and frail
All until it fails.
Life is so simple
You get up, you get out
Then back down into a slumber.
It becomes complicated
When someone disturbs it's peaceful routine.
Once it's disturbed
Something goes out of wack.
Everything gets messed up
And mixed around.
So then the life of the once living
Becomes the breath of the newly dead.
After that mix-up
That one little switch.
Life as we know it
Can become death just like this.
