Breathe… Sleep

When weariness becomes a friend
And despair and loneliness seem to hold on tight
When the world comes crashing down
Atlas shirks his job, failing to carry the world
When you’ve pushed so hard
And the fight has left you, still,
Remember this, a new day cometh
Breathe… Sleep you WILL fight again.

When confidence becomes scarce
And unfortunate events seem to trail you
When your essence is very much in doubt
And standing tall becomes a battle
When you give it your best shot
And it seems not to matter
Remember this, a new day cometh
Breathe… Sleep you will be presented another chance

When you have cried yourself hoarse
Heartbreaks seem to have a hold on you
When you call and shout
And no one hears your pleas
When it all seems meaningless
And suicide becomes an appealing bride, dear pause,
Remember this, a new day cometh
Breathe… Sleep there is a GOD who answers all prayers

When rising in the morning is a huge challenge
The prospects of the day crushes your soul
When the bills pile up
And payment defies rocket science
When you’ve spent your all… Utterly, totally emptied
And more is required of you
Remember this, a new day cometh
Breathe… Sleep cast your cares and worries onto HIM

The key to life is to breathe
The key to health, sleep… replenish your soul
Often the vicissitudes of life takes two
And then one, leaving people to gasp and pant
There is no shortage of air beloved,
Breathe… Your life depends on it
Sleep… Rest is a valid commandment
Remember this: worry does not make a man taller or a woman prettier
It has the opposite effect
So cast your troubles on God, breathe and sleep…
For on the morrow, HE’ll give you another chance and a fresh inspiration to conquer the challenge
So whatever you may be going through…
It’s a wise mantra to have this: And This Too Shall Soon Pass Away…
