A Sip

The world ventures onward

Closing in on its own wrath

The road less travelled

Has become our only path

The candle still burns

The bird keeps it a flame

With a calm breeze

Carried under the bird's wing

The light still calms the night

As the dawn still rises

The light lights the sky

The one we push towards

We reach

I look all around

I reach to the heavens

My body touches the sky

My mind wanders around

I sip a taste

The one I hold in my hand

The ground forces me to drop it

Spilling it to the ground

I touch everything
