I awake having forgotten to breathe.

As I take my first breath of the day, I am thankful

That all my senses have survived the night full

Of nightmarish scenes chasing me down as I sleep.

Fitful In my REM sleep as fear of the past lays its claws,

Sharp and deep into my accelerated heart beats,

That make a scary symphony foreshadowing futures,

Uncertainty, and the unknowns.

Learn from the past the lessons necessary to skip forward

Into a place of peace and restfulness that exists within.

That tranquility will surely push you into a future in

Which you can face undetermined with courage,

Your head held high, certain of your abilities to navigate

The choppy seas of your future.
