Medicine flows
Through
Trachea
Larynx
Or was it pharynx
To alveoli
Clearing airways
Letting oxygen through
To the slowly
Pulsating
Beast.

Giving it
Renewed
Life
Vigor
So its
Eternal
Hunger
Craving
For affection
Attention
Love
Can go on
Because that's the price
Of life.

Forever reminding us that life is not easy, but it is what we make it----in a way. We can either complain or live on. Great work~
