If the best you can do today

Is to put one foot in front of the other, it’s fine

Do not overthink, no attention should you pay

To the running commentary in your mind

That tells you to disregard what you have gone through

That tells you to get up and run like you used to

Give yourself grace, nurse and nourish no one but you

You need to make yourself a priority too

The trauma you have faced, the scars that you bear

Are not going to suddenly disappear

You have lost so much that you held dear

You need time to heal, that is clear..


Treat yourself with tenderness, the way you would treat

Your child, parent or sibling indeed

Forget the narrative etched somewhere

You are not being selfish, you simply cannot care

For everyone else if you do not heal

Let yourself grieve, let your heart each emotion feel

For closure is needed to move past events traumatic

So that wounds do not fester or become symptomatic..
