Walk on Saturday

Jimmy
I'm reminded of how grateful 
I am to breathe without major problems.
I have breathing problems, but I'm not sick.
These days, breathing gets put into perspective.
The scars on my lungs will forever 
hinder my inhales and exhales.
The colder it is, the harder it is 
to inhale without pain.
A stabbing feeling overwhelms my inhales,
making it difficult to take a full breath. 
I can handle it, though, no matter how hard it is.
I get through it, I continue down the trail.
