One Breath

The difference


Life and death

Is one breath!

Hold your breath

Fight your death

Go ahead

It’s easier said

Stay in bed

Lock the door

Shut the windows

Cover your face

Hold on to life

Embrace it

So tight

It’s alright

To fight

With all your might

Something that has

A sight

Something that

Has a sound

But this one!

Is impossible

To fight

Your best strategy

Is to surrender

From now

Don’t wait

Till the last breath

Face your death

Right now

Live with it

Embrace it

It’s more real

Than your life

This sets you free

And makes you ready

So move on steady

Live the moment

Then let it go


It might be

Your last

So live it fully

As the difference

Between life

And death

Fades away

In the realm

Of Silence…

  1. قوية فعلا ومخيفة قليلا.. ربما يوافقها في مستوى ما قول عمر رضي الله عنه: كفى بالموت واعظا.. ترى هل نستطيع فعلا أ ن نتعايش مع فكرة الموت دون أن نكف عن عيش الحياة.. أي نوع من الجهد أو التثقيف أو المعرفة نحتاج هنا؟ هل تكفينا قولة أحدهم ولعله علي رضي الله عنه: اعمل لآخرتك كأنك تموت غدا…والبقية مشهورة..

  2. Powerful poem-it takes my breath away!
