3 seconds... maybe 4





Man... I just keep finding so much depth
inside a single breath!
This time it hit me while I was sitting
on the beach down the shore
in Spring Lake, New jersey.
It was just beyond the throng
of Labor Day beach-going mayhem.
So I actually had room... to breathe!
Here goes...





3 seconds... maybe 4




Sit upon the sand... take a breath... inhale
Fill your lungs with potential
Reach that point of full capacity... 3 seconds... maybe 4
Then begin from the very top of your... head
And slowly commence... ever so slowly... deeply... to exhale
This is where you can find... you... your home
Yet another chance to start a new
Before you lies... yet another... welcoming opened door

As you release
Feel the Tension & Anxiety simply liquify
And drain from your body right down through your feet
Absorbed into the billions of thirsty... thankful... grains of sand

Exhale... release
Sense that line of T & A descending down within you... leaving you
Reaching your neck... chest... waist... your legs
Until the line of T & A is gone... completely... gone

Don't move... 3 seconds... maybe 4
Do you feel your life once again awaken inside of you
Go ahead and smile at the site of that wonderful...
Welcoming opened door
You've earned the moment for sure

The calm... the precious... most precious calm
This is... you
This is... home

Dont'choo dare inhale... replenish... no not yet
Eyes remain closed... lids softly touching
Calmness... well... that full throttled calmness continues...
Wide open within you
This is how you can feel... for the rest of your life...
If you choose to

That exhale... that release...
That life restoring negative energy... released
Is easily the thing I most look forward to
And at times... is simply the one constant in my life
And the reason for that wonderful welcoming door
To remain opened... unlocked
Without a doubt... my exhales... my release... my breath...
Not only awakens me... but...
Also doubles as my very own personal...
Wooden wedged-like doorstop

I wish I never had to breathe again
And lose this weightless freedom... but hold on...

Perhaps instead of just digesting yet another meaning-less...
Empty breath
But a pathway towards oxygenating a hungry flow
Of red and white cells
I transform every single one... every... single... one
Into this freedom
A natural and most effective defense to battle back...
And even attack
The daily pitfalls in which we encounter... aka...
The dreaded and uninvited... T & A

One after another... and another... go ahead take another...
Meaning-ful... breath
This could quit possibly transform... so effortlessly
Your entire... length of stay

Okay now... take that next breath... 3 seconds... maybe 4
Will it lead you towards a glorious calm
Or will it send you back out into a raging... relentless...
T & A storm


Meaning-less... or... meaning-ful... the choice is yours
