I find it so hard to breathe.
Like quicksand my lungs are filled and I fall deeper, unable to rise to the surface.
My chest expands but the air is cement and they fill with bricks the size of caverns.
How do I stop the death of me?
How do I reach inside and pull out the monster who tries to steal my soul?
I know there is a place where flowers bloom and life goes on like a beautiful ride on a carousel. Horses bob up and down while music is played. Run from one to the next – forever turning, forever singing, forever in love and loved.
I walk to the water’s edge and when the rings of time settle and reach the shore line, I know that every breath I have taken, every breath I take, every single deep inhalation breaths love into my soul. I shall not ever labor my breathing – not ever again.
The smile and a kiss from a rainbow in the sky touches me and I remember what I must do – breathe. Breathe in my life – accept the love, do the remarkable and move closer. Walk forward in love and honor my strength knowing that all good things will collide in my heart’s soul.
I wrote this a year and a half ago. I like to look back over my writings as they can serve as a reminder of how to stay on track. I saw “Breathe” and I want to make sure that I inhale the beauty of life that surrounds me everywhere I look today. I wish you all the clearness of mind that comes from breathing in your life! Happy Sunday. Lorrie
