Breathing Room.

January 24th, 2012

She breathes, deeply
allowing space
for the tomorrows to meet her
with gentle hands.

In with the maybe’s
Out with the hope not’s
In and out she breathes
while the tomorrows patiently wait.

Choice -a simple breath away,
a thought, a moment, an inhale away.
Tomorrow holds it out
and whispers “Take it, it’s yours.”

She’s brave and believes
that each breath can create
the place for her to choose -
another way, perhaps even a better way.

A rhythm a chant a song.
Letting go, and walking on,
to where the tomorrows
show her all that she can be.

“Thank you!” she breathes out
to the tomorrows and their freedom.
Then nods in deep gratitude
for yesterdays important lessons.

So she simply breathes, and just knows
what to do, who to be and where to go.
This moment enjoys her beautiful presence
and looks forward to seeing her here again soon.
