Code Purple: Day Twenty Four

Breathe in–
let the good find you.

Every moment
gives us a chance
to start again.
Every day
gives us a chance
to live again.

Breathe out–
let the bad release you.

This world
can not take away
your legacy.
This world
can not silence
your voice forever.

Be the eyes
through which
the world perceives you.
