My Every Breath

My every breath

feels claustrophobic

is a struggle

is like an elephant sitting on my chest

is lost in solitary confinement

is like breathing solely through a straw

is like running a perpetual marathon

is strangled by my absent functioning muscle

is like breathing in and out through a balloon

is stolen by windy days

is consciously controlled tirelessly

is my mind’s sole focus– in, out, in, out

is my conscious intention

second by second, minute by minute

leaves no fog on windows

no message left scares me!

Is it my last?

is savored

is survival

is an essence of life

is a blessing

shares my story/journey

tells you to live in the moment

each breath

tells you not to take it for granted

is my expression of who I am

affirms I am still supposed to be here

  1. Would you like to be part of a spiritual musings WhatsApp group? It is a group for like-minded souls who’d like to share thoughts, quotes, musings and all things related to spirituality. I’ve added many friends from around the world and it is a great place. Let me know if you’d like this, the aim is to create community and tribe. I know you may not be interested or on WhatsApp, I thought I’d extend an invitation just in case!
    Thank you.
    With Love,

      1. How wonderful, synchronistic! I’m not on Facebook but would love for you to join the group ~ my email is ~ and I’ll send my number over for you to join the WhatsApp group. ♥️🐲🐉

  2. Yes, only those things we lose are given a true appreciation. I lost my breath one day, and ever after it is a song in my heart. A great verse my friend, sung from that appreciation ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
