I’ve learned to appreciate the air

supplied into my body, into my bones

I’ve learned to breathe

not knowing I had lost the ability,

not knowing such a thing was possible

Only to later understand

that we were never taught in the first place

Breathing was never a priority

nothing one gave a second thought,

constantly being on autopilot
