Exhale

Daily Prompt: Exhale

Tell us about a time when everything seemed to be going wrong — and then, suddenly, you knew it would be alright.

 

At times that I find I am ‘waiting to exhale,’
like the protagonists in T. McMillian book , of the same name.

While ‘in betweens,’
I inhale.

DEEPLY.

Not a Clintonesque ‘inhale’
(which, of course, he did not);

Many, deep, long-held breaths.

And with each calming breath
I advance closer, to that purging,
satisfying,

EXHALE.
