Breath

Take a minute

Take a breath

Look at your life

Are you satisfied?

 

Do you love

What you do?

Or do you do

What you must?

 

Is your life

Like a dream?

Full of happy

Beautiful things?

 

Do you feel

Like you’re worth

The time you have

Upon this earth?

 

Do you fill

The world with joy

Through your smile

And happy hugs?

 

Or do you feel

The opposite

And wish to change

The life you live?

 

Do you hate

Those who hurt you

In the past

Or by mistake?

 

Is your life

A nightmare

With sleepless nights

Full of tears?

 

Do you feel

The emptiness

Of apathy

And loneliness?

 

Do you fill

The world with pain

Through your refusal

To change your ways?

 

Is this what

Your life looks like?

Either way

It is your choice.

 

Now breathe out

And make your choice

A happy world

Or sad demise?

Just A Breath Away

Just a breath away,

From falling apart.

Just a smile away,

From a broken heart.

You can’t take the secrets

Anymore.

Your whole life wasted,

On your own survival.

Time is racing,

To start over.

You’ve lived your whole life,

Trying to be happy.

To be rich,

Perfect,

Peaceful,

Loved.

But all you really do,

Is die inside.

You destroy the world,

You break the people,

You lose your mind,

Your soul,

Your sanity.

The cycle continues.

Day after day,

Month after month,

Year after year,

Time after time.

You lose and fail,

And find no gain.

You are broken inside,

And you break others in turn.

You gave up trying,

Because the effort,

Hurt to damn much.

Your hope has started fading,

From the shattered remains,

Of your lonely heart.
