Take A Break

Take A Break short poem

Photo by Stefan Leijon

If your heart gets heavy you might need a break,
waiting too long could be a fatal mistake,
From the top of the mountain to the bottom of the lake,
It’s hard to say when we will wake,
Maybe never, maybe soon,
Things might get better-we could very well be doomed,
The weight of fear and sadness can hold you down or get you in shape.
Too much of this life is held together with tape,
Faith, hope, and distraction come and go within a breath,
All things can be beautiful-even, and especially, death.
