There must be something more.

I take your hand, you breathe in

You let go, I breathe out

 

All we do is breathe, nothing left to ease

All we do is breathe, there must be something more

 

I begin to grow tired, I fall asleep

I start to dream, then I wake

 

All we do is sleep, always counting sheep

All we do is sleep, there must be something more

 

I hear you, you hear me

She hears him, he hears she

 

All we do is hear, but never seem to listen

All we do is hear, there must be something more

 

I tell her, she tells me

It's just lies, I never seem to see

 

All we do is lie, always trying to hide

All we do is lie, there must be something more

 

I take your hand, you breathe in

They drop the bomb, we all breathe out

 

All we do is die, looking at the sky

All we do is die, nothing anymore

this is very deep, and is very good.

We don't do much, do we, really? We breathe, walk, talk, eat, sleep.. all such normal things, but when you think about everything else that is out there, there's a whole lot that we don't, and probably will never, get to do. One minute you're breathing, the next you're not; it's unpredictable. I like this: it's deep, flows well and has definitely made me think. Good job :)

I rally thought this poem expresses things I had been meaning to for so long. You took the thoughts from my mind.
