a mere breath

Stop regarding man

in whose nostrils is breath,

for of what account is he?

Isaiah 2:22

All that people have

is what God gives them

Rich man, proud man,

famous man, strong man...

Everybody only has

temporary claim to anything.

But fear of man

is a controlling thing

Envy others, desire them,

controlled by them, hate them...

Even though they only have

the breath God gave them.

Inhale the air

and realize that then

all men, every one,

from greatest one to smallest one

Breathes the same air

God wisely put there.

Exhale slowly

and calmly conclude then

each breath, each moment,

each heartbeat, each thought...

borrowed from God as a gift

calls us to look to Him
