Respirando/ Breathing

This is a poem about human emotion, feeling lost, and recognizing you are not the only one. A poem to hopefully broaden perspectives and encourage people to walk in one another’s shoes.

Respirando

Tú estas perdido—
Inspira…
Todas las cosas,
Las cosas que te hacen tener miedo,
Las cosas que te confunden,
Las cosas que te duelen.
Espera—
Uno,
Dos,
Tres.
Espira…
Míralas en el viento;
Como mariposas aprendiendo a volar,
Luchando con cada movimiento de sus alas—
Y te das cuenta de que,
Ellas están perdidas también.

English Translation:

Breathing
You are lost—
Inhale…
All the things,
The things that make you scared,
The things that confuse you,
The things that hurt.
Wait—
One,
Two,
Three.
Exhale…
Watch them in the wind,
Like butterflies learning to fly,
Struggling with each movement of their wings—
And you realize,
They are lost too.
