Just Breathe

IMG_7163

We are all in pieces,
plagued by moments
where we long to escape,
seeking to rise above
the radiating ache,
all while holding too tightly
to our own despair,
too prideful to share,
pain evoked by silence
as we continue to ignore
the beautiful color
outside of our
sepia stained world,
far away from peace
and unable to see
that all we need to do
is look up

and breathe
