My personal testimony

Every activity requires a breath

Every breath is accompanied by an activity

Even sleeping takes air, all  things I struggle to do

Legs fall before they hit the floor without expectation of a completed task. 

I lay helpless with only mentally completed daily routines.

Breathe, I say Breathe with pursed lips, I can do it

 You can do it “I say” to myself this is not impossible

 All chores are completed once again

 I fail, back to my dreams “Breathe”

Everything around me is at its same peace

But still, I strive to find a breath of mind

Smeared tears makeup my face and I wrap my hair in sorrow

At times, I do not know or care what may follow tomorrow

Every activity requires a breath and every breath is accompanied by an activity

Even sleeping takes air, all these things I struggle to do

Without expectation of a completed task, my Legs fall before they hit the floor

I lay helpless with only mental completion of daily routines

Once again all tasks are completed and I fail back to my dreams

Everything around me is at its same peace

But still I strive to find peace of mine
