Discovering Gratification

Oxygen spews out from peculiar plants 
Carbon Dioxide releases from burning fuels…
Our lives are close at stake…we’re dispersing about like ants 
Oxygen slips into the hungry mouths of billions of living beings 
Each breath we take…
each step we take… 
Could be a lifelong mistake… 

Oxygen makes our bodies feel energized and flourished  
Magma brews inside volcanoes – 
Erupting odium…
Reacting to earthly heat and high pressure 

Oxygen sprouts when trees continue their growth spurts,
Regardless of their struggle to survive…
Revive…bidding to stay alive… 
Just keep on thriving…the sun will arrive…

Enigma surrounds our planet Earth – 
Black holes and galaxies fill our sight with pleasure
My curiosity’s sterilized by visions of the future soon to come
I’m willing to discover dark matter in my own hands…
My ingenious mind recovers from a breakdown,
Peeling speedy evidence by the minute…I succumb 
To my vital meaning of life…I breathe in the oxygen
Of amassed gratification
