The Blink Of An Eye - Poem by T.J. Daniels

I pray that I never have to take
that which is not mine to take.

The Breath Of Life
is the most precious
thing there is.

It saddens me
that in the past I have
but I did not know.

Anything there is
can be replaced
but that.

I cannot understand
the mind-set
in which:

The Breath Of Life
has such little value
that it could be taken

with the flick of a finger
in the blink of an eye.


(1999)
