just breathing

        When life takes hold of you no mercy given  
        Foreclosures popular , the new age to walk ..driven
        When your nerves are shattered 
        The home you live in seems scattered 

           Just breathe ~

       children don't understand why you can't give money on the daily 
       life feels cold and The bills are unbearable to open it seems
       When there is not enough food in the pantry for all
       you feel you are losing as you begin to fall , loose sight of dreams 

            Just breathe ~

     All these things are a test , every breath that counts.
     It's the faith,  and will to live , as anxiety mounts
     In your darkest hour just call on his power  
     with the help of God above , you will surmount.
        
           just breathe ~ just keep breathing

    Strangely when I look back at early days of struggle it does feel like it was a paradise. sadly I didn't think of it that way at the time. Great win, congrats. My poem didn't place but you might enjoy reading it just the same. Thanks for the HM in your contest, it is appreciated.

    Sometimes, when we can do no more, all that we can do is breathe. And, really that's all we need to do is keep breathing, and we will get through anything! A very inspirational and calming poem to read! Congratulations on your well deserved win!

    I really like the way you write and spread your truths. It is just the same in Oz where I come from. The poor live on nothing as our fat, ridiculous leaders get fatter each day...Peter

    Absolutely, "Animal Farm " some of us are more equal then others ..

    Just breathing is not enough sometimes while our wealthy Leaders destroy the dreams of our children and take food from the poor and elderly. Didn't Jesus Say "If you do this for the least of these you do it to me." By the look of their work I don't beleave they think much of Jesus or America. Your heart is good Shanity and I enjoyed your poem. God Bless.
