Breathe. Come on, breathe.
--you, that’s right, you.
You know you’re going places
You know that.
And yet here you are,
Gasping, choking, turning blue.
Can’t you see their faces?
Those people up there,
The ones that are crying.
--it’s all for you.
Breathe. Come on, breathe.
It’s not as hard as you want it to be,
It’s not as hard as you say it is.
Breathe. Come on, kid.
--there’s a world waiting for you.
