It’s been a rough few days in the news
& I am feeling (even more) discouraged –
And our politics.
I am ready for cooler weather already,
And I’m exhausted from lack of sleep.
So I am going to sit on my sofa,
Eat cotton candy from last week’s fair,
And finish the first season of Hannibal –
And I am not going to feel bad
For not doing laundry
Or working out.
Because it’s about damn time
I started being kinder to myself.
