Standing, sitting, kneeling, laying,
Resting, sleeping, dreaming, praying.
Waking, stretching, rising,
up now to join the world as it breathes.
Momentum growing, paces rising,
Birds are chirping, the world turning
But what if it all stopped...
Finding your lungs breathless, lifeless.
One breath is all you need.
Keeps the brain working, the blood pumping
The adrenaline driving
Something we take for granted. The need for air.
Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale...slower..relaxed.
Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale...faster...rushed.
Our breaths keep pace with us
And we keep pace with our breaths.
Until the last breath we take, when air is needed no more.
