We breathe in faith
    And exhale hopelessness

We breathe in gratitude
    And exhale indifference

We breathe in Beauty
    And exhale insensitivity

We breathe in joy
    And exhale sadness

We breathe in kindness
    And exhale harshness

We breathe in forgiveness
    And exhale resentment

We breathe in love
    And exhale isolation.
