close your eyes and breathe

Close your eyes and breathe. 

When the rain is too loud,

When the darkness in your closet

Overshadows your father's words 

"There is no monster under your bed."

 

Close your eyes and breathe.

When the kids are laughing at your curly hair,

When the girls huddle together

Looking at you,

Whispering and laughing.

 

Close your eyes and breathe.

When they tell you that you are not good enough,

When they try to make you fail

Because they will always try to bring you down.

 

Close your eyes and breathe.

When you are nervous about taking the leap,

When you do not know the outcome

Because every success comes with a risk.

 

Close your eyes and breathe.

When you reach your goals

When you turn around and see

That all these fears you've had

Are conquered. 

 

Close your eyes and breathe.

For you have made it.

You have overcome any obstacle, 

Any fear,

To be the incredible person you are today.

 

And all you had to do, was,

Close your eyes and breathe.
