Breath

  1. Ale Mercado illustration for Breath by Niamh Bambrick

Isn’t it weird how you can be breathing one minute
And not the next,
How it can just stop?
You never know when you last breath is going to be,
It could happen any minute.
How you use your last breath, that’s what’s weird.
Do you use it to say goodbye?
Do you use it to laugh or cry?
But then again you may not know it’s your last breath,
You may use it wrongly, then what?
You can’t get it back.
There’s no replay or restart button,
No rewind or pause.
Be careful how you use your breath,
Who knows which will be your last.
