Only breath to calm the soul
Only an overwhelming presence.
Let your lungs fill with dirty air
As your body embraces depression
Allow your mind to grip the hurt
As your skin speckles with mountains of sin
Pause No breath
Let your heart cling to the filth inside your soul
Every sorrow engulfed tightly in the veins of your heart
Where life and joy was once held
Rest and let your body suffer without the vital flow of oxygen
Feel your bones screaming for life
As your heart cries to be set free
Let your lungs erupt and demand broken chains
As the veins that were once coiled in pain
are unleashed by the pounding of a living heart
Let the grime of a sinful past
Pour into the hands of forgiveness
And experience the life that has been cemented in place of the pain
Live in an abundance of joy
Knowing that with every breath
With you
