Right now, I want to breathe. Breathe all the positive energies surrounding me. Breathe all the joyful breeze this earth is releasing. I want to breathe. Breathe every blessing there is. Breathe every person I want. Breathe everything I need. I want to breathe. If breathing calls for life, how come I’m no longer invited to the world of living?
Right now, I want to rest. Rest in the arms of the person I love. Rest in the warmth of the sun. Rest in the green pastures laid before me. I want to rest. Just rest because I need to. I want to rest because I have to. Have rest because I want to. Rest is what I desire around the corner. If rest calls for stillness, how come my world is a storm?
Right now, I want to shut my eyes. Shut my eyes before the challenges confronting me. Shut my eyes for people who don’t deserve me. Shut my eyes for everything that’s pulling me down. I want to shut my eyes. Be blinded and not see the hypocrisy of the land. Be blinded and not see you walking away. If shutting my eyes calls for darkness, where is the light?
You may not feel what I do right now. But try to. Breathe. Rest. Shut your eyes.
