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.

Change is not easy but absolutely necessary. I have changed. I feel it. 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

It’s past 7:00 PM on a Friday night. All I can see is the blank page on my computer screen. It’s like the cursor is mocking me again. More
