As one inhales, taking hold of the chords that bind
So to does the creeping hand of fear reach to one’s throat to strangle
The thousand-tongued song of insanity

And one may indeed exhale to then find
Only the void of annihilation that swallows
The empty silence of clarity

Though, betwixt all that gives and all that takes
As death draws on ever closer to all that has been given gift of breath
Ne’er is the guiding voice of destiny stifled
Upon the ears of children
