Cat - Black

Poem - Sometimes A Breath

The poem “Sometimes a Breath” was inspired by the quote “You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.” attributed to Mandy Hale.


Sometimes A Breath

Sometimes a breath is enough
to bridge a life beyond the now
even though the way seems barred
by the gulfs that confound

anxiety is the greatest foe
with taint for fear close behind
each has a message that defeats
forward motion one may achieve

whispered advice from the depths
asks for progress to be delayed
turn away from taking air
deep inside the ready lungs

holding stasis even while
a world demands more from time
not realizing the tipping point
has been decided before the plunge.
