When life goes awry and everything fails,
Some take to biting and chewing their nails.
For me, I confess, when stress does abide,
I simply stop breathing but take it in stride.

For prior to falling and hitting the ground,
Within me I hear, a powerful sound.
Remember to breathe and then start to pray,
There’s always an answer to find a new way.


I’ll never forget that very first time,
In panic I stopped, to heed this new chime.
I took a deep breath and said a quick prayer,
And now I declare, it spared me despair.

I once had a husband, intemperate was he,
All excuses he’d scorn, to please him was key.
Morning had come, clean underwear sought,
A duty forgot; my breathing did stop.

Remember to breathe and then start to pray,
There’s always an answer to find a new way.

So off to the dryer to freshen the old,
He never did know that his wife was so bold.

This definitely got right to the main topic. I often hold my breath when I'm in pain, nervous, or scared. I could relate to the MC. This was done so well and it flowed gently, it made me yearn to hear more.
