"In the Beginning"

Some days are hard . . . life can be rough.
Adulting these days can be pretty tough.
We forget so easy to take care of us.
Nah, I’m good, don’t make a fuss.

I got this, no problem, we play to the game,
Holding a mask, avoid any shame.
We can’t admit that we feel run down,
Can’t let on under this smile is a frown.

But let’s say it out loud for once in our lives.
We are tired and want to do more than survive.
We can no longer ignore our need for self-care,
We have to bend or we’re gonna break out there.

We must stop, we must breathe, we must come up for air.
What if we did something fun? Laugh if we dare?
We could even take moments to stop and survey,
The amazing things around us that make up this day.

Beautiful sunsets and music and dance,
Friends and family and embracing romance,
Coloring and writing and painting and walks,
Faith and renewal and God and long talks,

Moments to read and learn and to rest.
Time to explore and be at our best.
To have fun just because, to play when we can.
Why is this such a difficult plan?

Today I start right where I stand.
Writing for fun for a writer I am.
A picture prompt to start up the soul,
Look out now, for I’m on a roll.

So please enjoy my words for fun,
At least for today, the battle is won!
