breathe in the fruitful air.
fill your lungs with power-
feel the atmosphere consume you,
to pry open your mind, your spirit.
in hopes that your heart will soften,
just as Earth’s soil under rain.
so that you may feel pain, emptiness, sorrow, despair, anger and more.
and soften again to embrace love, happiness, kindness, tranquility and curiosity.
Breathe, breathe, breathe.
