breathe deeply my darling,
into the spaces between your bones,
the places that nobody knows,
and feel the world’s breath fill you up.
let your eyes close and fade to black,
sink into the valley of your wounded heart
and use you pain to make love and art;
to change the world as you exhale.
do not run away, but run inside yourself instead;
stop and sit in the rain and the reckoning,
be quiet enough to hear the Universe beckoning
for you to face your fears and rise.
breathe in deeply my darling,
until the light touches your bones
and all of the places no one else goes,
breathe till the world feels like home.
