The Path

sunrise-1634734_960_720

My heart is the sunrise—
always ready,
always warm.

My palms are the sunset—
in prayer,
to close and bless the day.

Who could have guessed such joy?
Such bliss?

To inhabit a body.

To wake up from a dream.

Mantra for a Bad Day

plant-2318936_960_720

When my mind is racing, breathe.
When my heart is pounding, breathe.
When my spirit is breaking, breathe.

When my mind is doubting, breathe.
When my heart is sinking, breathe.
When my spirit is flagging, breathe.

When my mind is collapsing, breathe.
When my heart is exploding, breathe.
When my spirit is suffering, breathe.

When the world seems total shit, breathe.
When one more minute
seems one more minute too many, breathe.

When I want to scream and cry.
When everything,
every damned thing,
seems horribly wrong, breathe.

Breathe.

Just Breathe.
