Take a Breathing Break

Take a breathing break, take a breathing break
Heed to the comforting feeling of being awake
To the monotonous dictates of moneyed pressure
Say nay, though not necessarily all together.

When shuffling your feet in a queue eternal
Or stuck in traffic, the clock ticking away to infernal
When kitchen fires work to the profusion
And the not-so-neighborly next-doors sound to intrusion.

When data exceeds the functions of Excel sheets
And our phone makes too many irritating bleats
Say nay, though not necessarily all together
To the monotonous dictates of moneyed pressure.

And heed to the comforting feeling of being awake
By taking a breathing break, taking a breathing break
And heed to the comforting feeling of being awake
By taking a breathing break, taking a breathing break.

Wake up to breathing, breathe into sleep
Breathe in the aroma of morning readiness deep
The pain of depression and fatigue unfortunate
Breathe with love as a friendly smile or motherly hug affectionate.

Breathe in music, breathe in colors
Breathe in the nothingness that pervades the Universe
The favorable do breathe in as do the adverse
But now take a breather for reading this verse.
