Slow Down

I finally have the time to slow down

Fight, flight, freeze, fawning my way through life

I think I’ll rest for a while

I didn’t know I’d grow this old

My palm reader said that I’ll live a long time

Maybe I should check in

and show up for myself more

I’ve treated my body like a rental property

It looks like I’m here for the long haul



Are how I fill my days

I nurse the fireplace inside my chest

I create a warmth for myself

I’m sowing my seeds

So that my garden will be bountiful

I can’t wait to watch the flowers bloom
