Tending to my Soul

I often forget

to be kind to myself

to look for light

to take care of my body

I understand the contagion of stress

the ill effects it can have on my self

yet I rarely rest

If my body were filled with flowers

they would be wilted

lacking vivacity

drained of color

flooding with toxicity

Perhaps I must remind myself

to tend to my body

in the way I would a daisy

to ensure my flourishing health

and the understanding

as a seed is planted

it needs time



to succeed

with a blooming existence
