Struggling to survive

and you don’t know which way to turn

suffocating under the weight

of all that tribulation

So breathe, just breathe

in and out, nice and slow

life is in the breath

and life begets hope


Your body aches

as does your spirit

you’re going through the motions

day to day, hour by painful hour

while the futility of existing

catches in your throat


Breathe, you need to breathe

breathe in the future

breathe out the past

remember the things that matter


Breathe for your family

breathe for your friends

Breathe your God-given breath

Breathe the miracle of every moment

from now until your life ends
