Poetry: “Breathing”

Another mental health related poem.



What is natural to most
An easy in and out
Not so for me
When my anxieties
Flare up
Creating vicious circles
Of panicked breathing
Fear of suffocation
Threat of panic attacks
Looming on the horizon
Relaxation impossible
When all focus
Is on that forced
In and out
Breathing wrong
Only distractions
Can soothe your senses
Anxieties momentarily forgotten
Breathing easy
And only with the right techniques
Can it remain so
