The Circle of Life

The Circle of Life
Life is none but a state of being,
death is none but a state of being,
alternating, rejuvenating.
Life and death are none
but one vibration repeating.

There is no emptiness, no room to spare,
even in death you are supporting life,
You are always somewhere.
…Start to care.

Was my mother ever dead?
Forever she’s ingrained within me—
life holding onto life,
Even in death,
She is supporting life.

Was Mozart ever dead?
Even in death,
he brings more life to life.

The leaves shed by a tree—
the leaves we call dead,
invite the sun, rain and wind,
they turn into mulch at the base of a tree.
They have a purpose—
wherever there’s a purpose
there’s life.

None is ever lost,
it’s always somewhere.
Life supporting life.

Of death, you should have no fear,
your soul doesn’t just disappear.
YOU are never lost,
you’re always somewhere,
in a circle, not a square.
The circle of life.
