Keep Calm And Breathe

Keep calm and breathe when feeling stressed,
when life is tough. If you're depressed
go for a walk, breathe in fresh air;
talk to a friend you know will care;
don't keep those feelings all suppressed.

Be honest, say if you're distressed;
those feelings need to be addressed.
There is a message I can share.
                   "Keep calm and breathe."

You'll find when feelings are confessed
and healing methods are accessed,
tough times are easier to bear;
and I will say a little prayer.
These words will help you to destress:
                   "Keep calm and breathe."
