Free Is The Air



One first has to know,
Who they are to grow.
Adjusting to become comfortable with this.
To identify which steps forward to take.
Unafraid to make mistakes.
Or excuse them made.
Hoping to chase them away each day.

The only thing free,
Is the air we all breathe.
For now.
Without debating it to question,
Who lives amongst us...
Gets too much to not deserve.

And any task one seeks sought to have,
Requires facing critique and negativity.
With it done to accept,
How motivating this can get.
Also,
One has to know to reach beyond obstacles.
And those challenges.
That come to pop and stop,
One's Ballon from rising too high.

And this to anticipate,
Should keep one remaining to stay proactive.
With a stacking in a backpack,
Spare balloons and extra string.
To sit if it is necessary patiently.
Awaiting for the next wind that blows.
Catching it the moment,
That breeze is felt to have arrived!

Don't despair.
Deepen your breath.

Slowly inhale to exhale the air.

Patiently sit and remove all cares to worry.

The air is free.
Why rush in a hurry?
Relax.

The sky is up!

The only thing kept down,
May be your head.
Filled with unnecessary B.S.
Someone else put there!
