A Breath of Fresh Air

You’ve got black chimney lungs

From all the sins that you smoked

You thought it was addicting and fun

A lump forming in your throat till you choked

.

Cancer ate away at your endless guilt

Cankerous dark matter rising from the filth

Wallowing madly in soot and craving shamelessly for dirt

Letting your demons overfeed the furnace blazing in your heart

.

But the year is over and the raging fire has been snuffed

Time to cease feeding the inferno that left your soul stuffed

A new day awakens, sunrise pulls in the newborn year

As the wind blows dark fog away, replacing it with a fresh zephyr

.

So clean up your act, get that broom and start to sweep

Till you could see the colours again and that pure white so sweet

And if you have a new flame going, and a steady passionate desire, then

Just remember to take a deep breath and feed it clean oxygen.
