For the past few days
It’s been like I’ve been able
To breathe again
And remind my body
It’s OK to worry
But sometimes
You need to breathe and remember
That the world isn’t crumbling
And you aren’t falling

And it’s OK to cry
As long as you don’t dry out

It’s OK to be overwhelmed
But you must be kinder

And just like climbing a mountain
You have to remember: step-by-step
And always breathe
