How I Breathe

How I breathe matters to the world. 
Whether from depths or shallows, 
the world knows itself through me. 
Yet, how easily I lose myself in the world. 
How I breathe matters. 

How I breathe matters to the world. 
In major and minor, life echoes 
the call of my heart. 
I must listen. 
How I breathe matters. 

How I breathe matters to the world. 
A purpose in every inhale and exhale, 
fortune turning on the tide of my lungs. 
Not one breath is lost. 
How I breathe can change everything.
