Breath(e)

Breathe

 

That involuntary

Unobstructed reflex

Everyone

Nay every living thing

Is able to do

The natural element

Revealing all sings of life

Giving purpose, meaning, fulfillment

Inspiring

Just breathe

But what if

You can’t?

Your throat

Your lungs

Every alveoli

Is enflamed

Consumed by

The notion of

Destruction

Impossible to ignore

Unable to refute

Living with this condition

My silence

Takes for granted

That which is

The life-giving

Nurturing

Sustaining

Simply primordial

Very core of my essence

Just breathe.

But I cannot.
