Breathe

when,
the walls close in,
when,
the ground shakes,
underneath,
constantly, unceasingly.
when,
the will, slips away,
to fight, to reclaim,
to rise up.
to sort,
to build bridges,
then,
all it takes,
to lift the laden feet,
to straighten 
the stooping shoulders,
is,
to breathe.
just,
to take in the air,
to fill your lungs,
to simply,
breathe,
one breath at a time,
one heartbeat in time,
breathe...
