Sometimes, I find
I just need to rest;
Get away from the struggles;
Stop facing the test
Of life and relationships,
Of getting ahead;
To think for a while;
Just live instead.


There is such peace
In drawing aside
To relish a quiet place;
Perhaps just to hide
From demands and challenges,
From conflict and strife;
To hear my own voice;
To embrace life.


Plenty will take;
But others will give
It can feel overwhelming,
Just trying to live
As one whole and capable,
Prosperous and free;
Time outs are needed
Just to be me.
