Breathe


Breathe...
Breathe like the waves of the Ocean.
How they are calm when breathing,
In and out the waves go in the Ocean.

Watch...
Watch like a panther stalking it's prey.
Studying it's prey as it moves here to there.
Being patient till finally it stalks the prey.

Feel...
Feel like an empath towards others.
Suffer with him what he suffers.
Maybe you will learn what it feels like.

Listen...
Listen to the sounds of a forest.
Chirping birds, scurrying mice...
Just close your eyes and listen...

Breathe, watch, feel and listen...
Maybe they will let you live...
Knowing you are useful and calm...
Just be calm, just close your eyes and
Listen...
Open them up again and wait...

Breathe...
Watch...
Feel...< br>Listen...

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
