sometimes this air is so thick
saturated in heritage
decades of legacies
that i am compelled to exhale
the very depths of my lungs
that i might leave an inheritance
for future generations

I am forever indebted to those who have breathed into my life, and it propels me to share my very breath if that's what it takes, to inspire another.
