Breathe is an inspirational book compiled from poetry that has been written by the author between 2013 and 2017. It has been broken up into sections, beginning with quiet contemplation and ending with the liberating belief that anything can happen. What happens in between is sometimes light-hearted fun and sometimes serious. Stokeld’s poetry shifts towards self-acceptance and free thinking as the book progresses mirroring the authors own struggles to achieve these goals.
Because you can
While the world weaves is threads around you
Release the strain
Allow the train to take you where you’re going to
Feed your lungs
Allow the air to do what it has to do
Feel this moment…
You are alive…”
Author R. A. Stokeld lives in Penge, London.
