Half a breath perpetually held

Half of the mind preoccupied

In fear of a disaster looming near

Panic always simmering inside

Life like a hurdle-race never-ending

From crisis to crisis, life seems to go

No time to catch a breath at all

Just weathering blow after blow

Tranquil moments lay forgotten

Chaos rules the roost every day

Real and imagined catastrophes

Conspire to take peace of mind away..


Take a deep breath- that’s cliched advice

But one that works well nevertheless

Take a breath deep, focus on it alone

Feel a reduction in the level of distress

Interrupt the flow of calamitous thoughts

Banish all the “what-ifs” from mind

Life will continue to present crisis situations

But less ruffled by them yourself you would find
