in all of its beauty,
its rollercoaster rides of ups and down,
life reminds me how far I have come,
and how far I have yet to go.
I’d love to publish
an in-depth exploration,
to include some musings
from my journal.
But I’m nodding off.
My body is telling me it’s tired,
and because I only have one,
I am going to show it great respect.
So, goodnight friends,
I’m giving myself the gift of rest.
