Invitation 3 – Inhale

posted in: Invitations | 0

What if your ego lived inside you

In your lungs

So when you took a deep breath

It grew

And you thought you could hold your breath


As long as the world loved you


But then you walk into a cloud

Of smoke

And you exhale


Lose your ego

And cough again


Because the tendencies

Of the people who don’t see what you see

Create the smoke

From their own lungs, filled with doubt

When they exhale


It can be so hard to breathe

When you walk into smoke


Remain calm

When you walk into smoke


Be patient and accept time

When you walk into smoke

Then inhale


Just inhale
