What it Means to Breathe

What it Means to Breathe

A Poem by StayAnchored

Sometimes I forget what it feels like to truly breathe

-To not look up and ask “God, why me?”

-To remain focused on my Author

-To not wonder if I should’ve spoken softer

-To be content with who I am

-To wonder why I’m not eternally damned

-To fully grasp the extent of God’s grace

-To fully envision his perfect face

-To focus on today and not on tomorrow

-To let go of all my internal sorrow

-To long to go against the grain of society

-To not desire a life full of propriety

These things are what breathing means to me, not just physically how my lungs do or don’t collect air, but how my God and I make the ultimate pair.

This is so awesome! Very interesting structure I would've never thought to basically bullet point a poem. By the rhyming helps is to flow while connecting separate but relevant ideas. And it's so short but still so powerful!
And I'm entirely biased because I completely understand. Your poem is an inspiration because I've been trying to figure out how to write about what God means to me and my relationship with him and struggles. Awesome read!

Thank you so much! I really appreciate the review! :)
Such a refreshing write... Most of us just take it for granted but if we just think about it we can understand the precious gift God has given us, he gave us life... This is such a kind and touching write... Breathing is not only living but it means that God is breathing within us... Lovely work...

Thank you very much! I'm appreciative of your review!
Breathing life in and out is different than breathing physically, and being alive isn't just simply getting up in the morning. This is a powerful and nice message, and it's amazing what you have found in God.

This really illustrates the struggle and thoughts that most every if not all Christians experience at some time or another. But in the end, the relationship with God overcomes all the doubts and fears! Great job, thanks for sharing! Loved it!
