A one-word mantra repeated
Regardless of the surroundings
And actions of others
Expelling the negativity
The foolish thought that the ability to write
Has expired
With each exhale
Blocking out the world and time itself
Hesitant that truth lies even in a breath
Until there is no choice but to gasp vehemently for life
Every sensory input overloaded at once
With only the eloquence of oxygen
