Being alive, Living life, Pain, Poetry

Breathe in deep

It’s been a while, and compelled to write a poem today. 🙂

Prompt word ‘wind’ for the ‘b’ line, as supplied by Ronovan Write’s weekly prompt.  What ‘b’ line? Check this out here.


Time runs away, or so they say,
run child, you must run like the wind;
chase your dreams, don’t stop till you win.
They did not say that you may lay 

to rest; sometimes like the trees sway.
Let yourself be held, pause to will.
Sights you missed rushing by – be still,
see and savour. Child, breathe in deep.
Nourish your soul. If you must, weep.
You’re running even as time stands still.
