We have allowed

countless minutes


sections of days

slip away

to underserving

miniscule irritants.


What are these silly



stealing smiles?

How do they hold

this much power

over our lives?


Breathe in

Let it all go

one exhale

Take the wheel

straighten out

hit the gas

see it fade in the rearview.


Fall for a reason

float faceup

Feel the release

Free the mind

Arms wide
