Just Enough to Squeak by

One moment of mindfulness
is enough to part the seas,
enough to turn back the hands of time,
enough to launch a brighter future,
enough to rediscover the truth,
enough to put deception to rest,
enough to drive the swine to the depths,
enough to balance order and chaos,
enough to find a perfect pattern,
enough to raise love on high.

One deep breath
is enough to save a soul.

Ten deep breaths
are enough to heal the world,
enough to seek redemption,
enough to ask forgiveness,
enough to stop the wars,
enough to feed the famine,
enough to heal the pestilence,
enough to raise the dead,
enough to harmonize the rhythm,
enough to synchronize the song,
enough to settle all scores,
enough to bring about a perfect peace,
enough, at least, to make it through one more day.
