Breathe deeply

Take time to look at the world
enjoy the miracle of life
despite the chaos and confusion
you need to put that aside
it truly is a good time to be alive
~~~breathe deeply~~~
you should spread love and kindness
goodwill towards fellow man
acknowledge today
don't look back to yesterday
or worry about the future
~~~breathe deeply~~~
appreciate all that you have
don't get caught up in anxieties
or let your mind travel 
down that road
focus on the positive
~~~breathe deeply~~~
leave fear and panic behind
do things that will enrich you
 move forward be positive 
be progressive
leave negativity behind 
~~~breathe deeply~~~
