Remember to Breathe

This blog is rapidly becoming all about poetry, but there’s just so much good stuff to share. I do hope  John White doesn’t mind me sharing this. It was originally posted on DoubleU:…….

Remember to Breathe

the numbers look bad

the doctor pronounces

a life sentence

remember to breathe


love and affection cease

the death of anything

of real meaning

remember to breathe


redundancy upon redundancy

days blur together

endless, pointless

remember to breathe


another light is fading

the inevitable loss

comes ever closer

remember to breathe


it is the life I’m given

despite its trials

it’s up to me to

remember to breathe
