better because

Inspired by the phrase ‘My respiration and inspiration, the beating of my heart’ taken from ‘Song of Myself (Leaves of Grass)’ by Walt Whitman.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

into each
of my contemplations
I place
my heart

the beating of
my heart

to enter thought
requires
the whole of me

or so I believe

so
I believe

with every breath
a new insight

the more I breathe
the more
I know

and so
on twenty three thousand
occasions
each and every day

I throw myself
the full length of me
within
and so
my knowledge grows
and it inspires

twenty three thousand
times
I find my way
toward light

even now
as I ponder at my ease
this way of thought
is new

and I am more

a bigger
better man
now
because I know

I am more than me
because

I know
