Holding Our Soul’s Breath…..

courtesy of whalewriter.wordpress.com

I think when we sigh we are like whales….

     Expelling a tightly held breath

under the weight of the sea,

of captured dreams

      locked in our vaults at the bottom of an ocean of conformity….

And you see – we can’t hold our soul’s breath that long

      The length of a lifetime repressed…

We need to come up for air

      Or we die –
