Who What Where

Who do you want to be?


Rest your fingertips together.

In the temple of your hands

Make a wish for this life.

Angels, guides, whatever you believe—

Even the atoms if that helps.

The atoms are only energy,

And energy can be changed.


What do you want to do?


Feel the air course through your lungs.

They inhale and exhale,

Taking the old air out,

Bringing the oxygen in.

Let your mind follow your breath,

Taking the old, stale thoughts out

Bring the new ideas in.


Where do you want to stay?


Think of a pleasant place,

Exciting and bustling

Or sheltered and serene.

Place yourself there

For as long as you like,

For a second or an eternity.

Live in this place.

Bring it in your breath,

Feel it on your fingers.


Let go, let go, let go

Of this stress and strife.

Let your body relax,

Let your fingers tingle,

Breathe a long sigh.


You are home.
