Another Ending

There is quite a fascinating philosophy
that I have discovered
and it revolves around our breath.
Not necessarily that we must do so
but that the number of our breaths
are, well,
numbered.
That,
at birth,
we are allotted a specific amount of these breaths,
and barring accidents,
we can never take too few
or too much;
only ever
what we are given.
So the philosophy
is to take long,
deep,
grateful breaths
in order to stretch your life
to its fullest.
I cannot yet attest
to its validity
but after a few deep breaths
I must say that I feel quite

invigorated.
