Breathe…a breath

A breath ~

 

Done without thinking.

 

Yet…

 

An app on my watch tells me it’s time to Breathe, as if I’ve gone through the day without breath.

 

Take a breath.

 

We have developed into a world without breath.

 

Moments of terror Take Our Breath Away from us now, instead of beauty.

 

We are Out of Breath, screaming from the back row to the Powers That Be, about the injustices and atrocities we suffer ~ only to exhaust ourselves, left Gasping for Breath, learning that we might as well Save Our Breath.

 

In The Same Breath, we tell our children to stand tall ~ fight the good fight.

 

All the while, Under Our Breath, we mutter our disbelief at what this world has come to while on our watch.

 

Take a Breath.

 

We stand up to fight on, Catch Our Breath, taking pause or rest before continuing our battle.

Take a Breath.

 

Children ripped from loving parents’ arms

Children left in abusive parents’ hands

Children placed in underfunded, over-crowded, collapsing schools

Children plopped in front of devices to keep them quiet instead of engaging them

Children ignored and allowed to do whatever they desire…

 

Yet we wonder why things are going to pot??

Resume regular breathing.
