When you Think you’re Alone & no one can Understand your Pain—Breathe.

I breathe.

When I can no longer face the uncertainty of the world…I breathe.

When I feel as if I am being held underwater and drowning…I breathe.

When I hold my breath like a spoiled child who can’t get their way…I breathe.

When peace of mind seems to evade me at every turn…I breathe.

When I think I am alone and no one can understand my pain…I breathe.

I breathe when I break through the surface of the water, gasping for air.

I breathe when I remember that I am not alone.

I breathe when I know, fully, that this too shall pass.

I breathe out the darkness and I breath in the light.

I breathe…

I breathe…

I breathe.
