Achieve Every Breath

The view that I maintain is born with me and the world

As a no-name knock-off

I know just about nothing

*


But when we put our heads together

We are oysters holding wise pearls

Sharing the sands of time

Exploring land, sea and sky forever

Beauty in our vision

And grit in our soul curled

*

It’s easy to scrutinize

But it’s not fair to capsize me

They should really know

I aim to do my best

Anxious moments melt into acceptance when we get well

I’d like to prove to you that I can pass every test

Hold onto empathy

As we look past

To the bottom line

Don’t let a few nerves

Unravel all the rest

*

Believe Believe

Achieve every breath

Achieve nothing less

Than our absolute best

*

From conception

Our dreams are all that we imagine

The view of society

Determines how they grow

I will hold my confidence

in the heart of my dense brain

And keep myself connected

To life’s ebb and flow

*

The view of myself is born with me and the Earth

As sunshine superstars

We see something certain

*

And when we put our heads together

We are ancient trees shimmering with mirth

Sharing the branches of time

Exploring land, sea and sky forever

Beauty in our vision

And for everything life’s worth

*

It’s easy to criticize

But its not fair to penalize me

They should really know

I aim to do my best

Toxic moments melt in to acceptance when we get well

I’d like to prove to you pure accidents made the mess

Hold onto empathy

and look past

To the bottom line

Don’t let a few safe swerves

Cause me to fail the test

*

Believe Believe

Achieve every breath

Achieve nothing less

Than our absolute best

*

From conception

Our dreams

Are all that we imagine

The view that we share

Determines how they grow

Let us hold confidence

in the soul of our dense brains

and keep ourselves connected

To life’s cosmic flow
