Just Breathe


Sometimes the air around us is foreign.
Our lungs adopting to the atmosphere.
Knowing. Unknowing. We await
as the intervals thicken or thin.
Will the air become audible?
Will the seasons brighten or dim?
Do we lay store or forge ahead?
Is it enough to seek answers to questions
or is the living in the doing?
A thought held close built around another
thought is of no use if it sits braced to
a chair reluctant to breathe the air.

-Tosha Michelle

  1. I enjoyed this, a wondering of how we adjust to the unknown. We’ll never know what lies ahead of us, but it’s the choice to push forward or sit on our hands.

  2. Many people never realize the damage indecision can cause; much more than opportunitiies lost. Indecision can lead to perfect couple never forming, good jobs being lost. Lovely write, I used to be indecisive, but now I am not so sure.

      1. Exactly. I once bumped into a high school classmate who I loved so badly, but never had the courage to talk to her. I always thought she was into jocks. First thing she told me was Andrew I was so in love with you. Learned my lesson. Going on a picnic. Have a great day.

  3. I think possibly what people working for one hate the most is indecision. Even if I’m completely unsure, I’ll pretend I know exactly what I’m talking about and make a decision. The most important thing I can do is try and make myself very clearly understood. ~ Anna Wintour

    As I’m reading breath-taking writing. I thought about this song. It’s been awhile flash back to the 90’s.
