Breathe
Inhale the world
All its colors and joy
All its beauty and hope
Breathe in the flowers
The smiles; the power
Take in its history
It's laughter
Breathe deep
Hold in the oceans
The smell of the snow
Drink the rain
And great wonders
Inhale the sights. . .

Breathe in the world
Inhale disease
Take in poverty
Breathe in death
And hate
Murder, rape, and greed
Hold in hunger
Abandonment, neglect
Breathe deep
Inhale tears
Sorrow, despair, and rage
Breathe in vengeance
Drink the darkness
Drink the fear. . .

Do all of this and do it well
Absorb everything
Don't blink
Let it seep into you
Run through your mind
Breathe it in
Breathe without prejudice
Without ignorance
Don't look away
Be accountable
Look again and breath
Don't back down
And then. . .
REMEMBER EVERYTHING!
