Breathing In Liberation

it's been so long
since i've been gone,
and i'm afraid to come back.

too many times i've given up,
lost the fight to put air in my lungs,
and i'm afraid you'll see.

but i know you did.

you saw me destroy everything
with my evil goings and sayings,
and you still gave me a pulse.

even after i fled.

maybe it's time to face the truth
that you do more for me in a moment
than i do in a lifetime. 
and yet i'm still here.
i'm still breathing,
and your arms still steady me.

i'm breathing,
and it's your breath providing for me.
