But day after day

She would lift up the band aid

Keep Breathing

6 Comments

IMG_20180211_125713Take a deep breath in

Hold it for a moment

Now let it go slowly

Feel that?

You’re alive.

That may or may not excite you

As life has been a little shaky lately

Almost as if the solid rock you once stood on

Is melting ice, thanks to global warming!

You’re alive.

 That’s something, isn’t it?

It means you still have another chance

To allow life smack you in the face

Or run to the throne of grace.

Everyone dies someday

But for you, not today

So do me one favour, love

Keep breathing.

With every aching muscle, with every tap on the keyboard; with every deadline I’ve scaled through; with every new thought; with every new environment… I can say I have changed. Change may not look good but after a while, it feels really good. More

instasquare_2017929141047927Exhaustion is a common characteristic of being burnt out. And hey, that’s just physical exhaustion. What happens when you’re burnt out in your soul and spirit? You watch as the last wisp of smoke from the quenched candle fades into the dark background. No doubt you’ve got your back to the ground.   More
