one breath at a time

If there are mornings you wake up

with no strength to start the day

and if there are midnights where you feel

no Light will come your way

take heart. breathe deep.

go to the nearest window.

Look up into the sky

let it remind you it’s okay

to be this small and human thing

that does not know everything,

and is letting go

and taking in

one breath

at a time.
