Relax and feel


Slowly breathe in

Let the air fill your lungs

Feel the blood in your veins


Relax and let yourself feel


Slowly breathe out

Let the air empty your lungs

Feel the blood in your veins


Feel your heartbeat

as you slowly breathe in again

And fill your body with the air

with all it's good emotions

Feel the emotions go through your body

with the help from the blood

running through your veins


Relax and let yourself feel


Feel your heartbeat

as you slowly breathe out again

And empty your body from the air

with all it's bad emotions

Feel the emotions go through your body

with the help from the blood

running thorough your veins


Relax and let yourself feel

as you slowly breathe

And let all the emotions

go through the blood in your veins

into the beating heart of yours


Relax and feel

The Story Behind This Poem

As I woke up this Sunday morning, I thought about how important it is to breathe. I was very tired, but I couldn't sleep. I felt that I needed to write a poem about breathing. I was lying in my bed and thought about the beginning of the poem. I wanted to start with the words "All around us ...", but I couldn't think of how it would continue. I decided this poem would begin with the word "Feel" instead. I just knew that I wanted the content to suit eberybody in toady's busy society. Sometimes I get the feeling myself that I forget to breathe, not only psychologically, but also physically. I'm so busy doing other things. As I laid down to sleep on Saturday night, I had to take som deep breaths to relax. I felt like a had a lack of oxygen in my body,

When I finally got out of my bed this Sunday morning, I turned on the computer right away. I couldn't start doing anything else before I had written this poem. I needed to get my thoughts out of my head into HubPages. Everyone else in the family was still asleep. I could write my poem without any children interrrupting me with the word "Mummy". I started to write. I wanted the reader to relax and really enjoy the poem. That's why I changed the first word "Feel" to the words "Feel and Relax", wich also became the title of the poem. Now I just continued writing. I wanted "the breathing out part" of the poem to be the same as "the breahing in part", but reverse, if you know how I mean.

When I was finished I went through my photos to look for some that could fit the content in the poem. I wanted the reader to become relaxed by reading the poem and by the photos taken on a warm summer's day. The photos are shot outside my parent house in the summer of 2010. I remember the day as very warm and sunny. I was lying on the lawn looking up in the blue sky that day. Luckily I had brought my camera with me. This is the story behind this poem. I hope you enjoyed reading it.

I did enjoy this poem very much and thank you! I am constantly reminding Bev to breathe when she gets upset of nervous about something. I had a sponsor in AA once tell me not to sweat the small stuff and it's all small stuff. :)

Beautiful poem, Made! I usually get my ideas for writing just before falling asleep or right after I wake up. I wonder if there is some reason why that happens so often?

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and tell you that I think you are a wonderful person.

Say hello to Finland for me!

Hi Bill, I must constantly remind myself to breathe.

I don't get my ideas in the middle of the day either. I have no idea why you and me get our ideas in the morning or in the evening. The good thing is though that we get our ideas.

I will say hello to Finland and goodbye to the snow. It's melting fast every day now. Thank you Bill!
