Time to Breath

Time to breath

written by: Don Knowles



Rush to the plane
Dash to the car
Run for your life
Jump over the bar
In this constant reviving
Of frantic surviving
It’s easy to forget
One simple task
take time to care for yourself
With each pending deadline
On everyone’s shortlist
Insert that time just to
A retreat out to wide open spaces
Those fields reserved just for you
Your mind and your spirt
enhanced in the moment
We’ll sort out
Will diffuse away
strains and pains of life every day
So take a moment
however short however long
To build yourself
To build you strong
In this snap chat word
You’re  a novel
Take Time to write
one more exquisite line
To your fascinating story

My writing is typically written while I'm on a treadmill, so I call myself "the treadmill poet!"
Born in West Chester Pa in 1960 I have been inspired to begin writing again through my interactions with two people I care deeply about that are experiencing the torrents of mental illness.
