Give yourself a break

Give yourself a break.

You don’t have to be productive every day
to feel like you are enough.

Make some time for afternoon naps,
cloud watching
and sunlight.

Recall every compliment
you’ve received lately and believe them.

Be aware of moments
when you can get out of your way to be kind
to someone and realize that you’re capable of change.

Take it to heart
how life can be so simple and so idle
and still be filled with much peace and much love.

Remember, every now and then
to be gentle with yourself and take some time
to go outside and breathe in the beauty of calmly evolving.

Your progress won’t be ruined
if you take some time to be realigned with yourself.

Take all the time you need.

All we have is forever —
In the vastness of the infinite —
Light travels back into space —
Homecoming of the festive spirit.

Love becomes real after death —
Everything transforms into magic —
Celebration for a life —
Well experienced with all that’s tragic.

All we have is forever —
There’s nothing to fear in work and time —
For all labors will vanish —
Better to relax in perfect rhyme.

All we have is forever —
We’re all children playing with the stars —
Forever in the cosmos —
Where there are no guns and spite and wars.

Reality is a dream —
Every one of us is still asleep —
Someday we will understand —
What we create is not ours to keep.

All we have is forever —
We’re each other’s sunshine after all —
In the here and now, there’s pain —
Until the day we receive our call.
