BREATHE, BELIEVE, BASK

on 24/01/2015

Breathe!

Take each breath
Deeply
Calmly
Seriously
For not everyone is free to have it
Not everyone can breathe easily
Not everyone’s air is breathable

Believe!

Believe in dragons
Fairies
Unicorns
Magic
Love
Miracles
Friendship
Slimming chocolate
Honest politicians
The honesty of children
Ghosts
Angels
Believe in whatever makes you tick
Whatever gets you going
Whatever makes you a better person

And bask!

Never forget to bask in the sunlight
Of your success
In the shelter
Of your friends
In the gratitude
Of those you helped
In knowing
You were helped

Breathe
Believe
And bask

And don’t rush
Don’t panic
Don’t skip
Don’t delay

Breathe each day fully
Day by day
Believe every dream without
Faltering, unswayed
And
Bask
Take your time
To enjoy every breath
To feed every belief
To bask in your dreams
