A Breath.

A breath.

So much can happen

In that one breath.


That breath is a moment.

A moment of calm,

A moment of clarity.


In that moment,

Breathe in life

Exhale worry.


Or an eternity.

Everything happens

In that eternity.


That breath is an eternity.

An eternity of fear,

An eternity of confusion.


In that eternity,

Absence of oxygen,

Thoughts are clouded.


That instant of two extremes

Becomes my freedom,

Becomes my prison. 


In that second,

Will I find calm and clarity?

Will I find fear and confusion?


In a breath, indecision decides.
