Breathe Softly

Poem By Uriah Hamilton

Breathe softly, settle down,
Allow anger to subside;
When sadness clouds your innervision,
Imagination runs wild.

Do not accuse anyone of anything,
Just always be on the move
Toward something beautiful and new
Until life opens like a book
With exciting and illuminating stories.

Eventually you can defeat
Any dark and debilitating depression;
You first have to find a small light within
And slowly allow your mind to become sunflowers
Where lovers sit sharing kisses and wine.

I don’t desire to wear a sad face too long
When I know I live in a world of flowers and birds
And that the evening will usher in a sky of scattered stars,
When I know hopeful prayers and songs

Healing Endurance

Misfortunes can be intense
In the hour of sadness,
But even earthquake ravages
Get rebuilt until a skyline
