Learn how to breathe slowly,

Observe your breath and its sensation,

The wind that goes out, the warmth and the feeling

of inhaling the surrounding,

Learn how to breathe fast,

When you’re climbing up rocks,

The rhythm of your breath indicates,

Your heart beat rate.

The adrenaline rush.

Learn how to breathe in positivity,

The world is in shambles but,

You could be doing better than that,

Remember we breathe in oxygen but give out carbon dioxide,

One man’s waste is another man’s treasure.

So learn how to breathe.
