In breathing

I become

my own home.

 

Inhaling,

I allow hope.

Exhaling,

I release fear.

 

Breathing in

I expand,

filling all space.

Breathing out

I set free

what keeps me small.

 

Breathing in

I admit

peace, abundance,

expansion,

acceptance,

Trust, courage, love.

 

Breathing out

I let go

assumption,

control, doubt,

grief, anguish,

Expectation.

 

In breathing,

I become

A rock bound

to the Earth.

 

My face open

to the sky,

welcoming

all seasons,

all weather.
