Breathe Again

Written by: Isioma West

The suffocating pressures are not lifted from you
Like burdens that took over your body.
All of the fears and tears have been purged effectively
And now you can breathe again
Freely, easily.
You had been tied to responsibility and people’s misunderstandings of your feelings
But now that you have been unbound,
Spread the wings of life and take flight into freedom.
You are now on your own
And now independence has become your close friend
As well as sense and morality. 
Breathe again.
