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.

Legacy?

images

The innocence blotted out with the constant barrage of murder.

 

Religion against religion —

Race against race —

Color against color —

 

Why is it always this way, all in the “name” of something — all claiming a righteous cause?

 

Does each deity really demand all this destruction and death? If so, why worship it?

 

Nothing moves forward, each act of terrorism a step backwards. Where is the sanity and reason? Instead it all perpetuates savagery and madness.

 

Perhaps the world needs a book study:

Lord of the Rings…?

Lord of the Flies…?

…just the Lord???

 

We all live on this globe. We destroy it without care along with all the people upon it.

 

This is our legacy    …      …      …         ?

Split

An entire year. Not one blog post ~

Apparently my blog and I have split.

What a year of distractions (work, Facebook, work, tasks, work, TV, work)

And I allowed them to control me, I have to admit.

 

I actually avoided even opening my blog.

My heart, which reading through my past posts,

Always had so much to say,

But now it has somehow fallen silent ~ a quiet ghost.

 

Is my heart no longer moved?

Is it a numb, unfeeling imbecile?

Certainly the murderous rage from the anesthetized continues.

Have I become apathetic, the attacks that are now so predictable?

 

Perhaps it’s a little bit of guilt

For a life overflowing with blessings,

A year filled with love, family health, and happiness.

To write of it a blow ~ a slap in the face to a world marred by weapons.

 

Whatever the cause,

Whatever the major inducement,

I must no longer allow my heart and mind to be muted.

A resolution made for my own well-being and improvement.

 

Happy New Year ~ 2016
