sleep.

but don’t forget to breathe.

breathing is important.

it’s what keeps you alive.

don’t forget to stop for a while.

time’s a tide you don’t want to be flown away with.

take the wheel.

rev the engine.

and

just when you’re about to shove your foot down the pedal.

breathe.

breathing is important.

it’s what keeps you alive.

spend your days doing what you don’t love spend your nights thinking about what you couldn’t do.

because it keeps the grind on

but

breathe.

breathing is important.

it’s what keeps you alive.

for when you can’t tell needs from passions

and

when your fire burns out

and all that’s left

is ash.

breathe.

breathing is important.

it’s what keeps you alive –

 

 

until it’s not enough.
