Deep Breath

Take a deep breath, count one to ten
Until you finally feel better again
Breathe in, try your best to hold it
Breathe out, and then repeat it

One, two, three, I am filled with air
And of anger, fear, frustration, despair
Please make it stop, make it end
It hurts, I don’t want it, handle it, I can’t

Four, five, six, it pains to keep it in
The tears are fighting for my cries to begin
I don’t want to be weak, I don’t want to show
How weak I am, no one must know

Seven, eight, nine, my head is spinning
I start to feel fine, the end is beginning
Keep going, make me feel better than before
I don’t want to feel this way anymore

Ten, I exhale, I let it all out
The pain comes with the air out of my mouth
If it doesn’t work, I take a deep breath again
Until I can fool myself that I’m better again
