Poetry- Let Your Soul Breathe

Suffocated in distress

Lost in uncertainty

I cry for help

And then obsess,

Will my God

Answer me?

I leave no space

For silence.

White flag in retreat.

I drown alone, despairing

he says,

“Let your soul breathe.”

Take a moment to just be.

Here and now,

Alone with me.

And I inhale

the aroma,

Of God ordained opportunity.

As I relax in myself.

And let my soul breathe.

For fear of missing more,

Ignoring what He’s sent my way.

I struggle to let go

Of the remnants of my day.

Guided time is mystery

With no way to still my heart.

But if I try, I’ll slowly be

Able to drift apart

From all that holds me back.

Fulfilled in where I lack

And surrender to thoughts of free

I rush along, in tune I hum..

As I let my soul breathe.

This place of joy amazing

Grateful for all I see.

Able and more than willing

To do what must be done.

To focus on the Father

And His loving, saving Son.

The sun sets beautifully,

Over risen mountain peaks.

As I close my eyes willingly,

To let my soul breathe.
