Breathe woman

Inhale tenacity. Exhale timidity.
Shut out noisy negatives. Let in unspeakable joy.
Just breathe.

Through the daily steady bills
Through the unending school runs
Just breathe.

The plantain gets burnt
The rice gets too salty
Just breathe.

The children are picked up late
To-Do Lists sometimes blur your vision
Just breathe

Your confidence is sexy. Your presence is priceless.
Don’t get used to ugly and forget how beautiful you are.
So let your hair down. Close your eyes.
And just breathe woman.
