Exhaustion

 

“I can't go on!”

 

You don't have to.

Let your lungs do the work for you.

Let your heart beat more quickly,

Or more slowly, as it will.

Let the air move around you,

Discernibly, lightly, touching your skin.

 

Abandon all thought.

Dare to be still!

Dare to be empty!

And know, know,

That life will return to you,

Some day.

 

Let the space be filled with healing.

Let the emptiness be as it is.

Be still

And know this place

And know that life will return,

Somehow.
