peace, a poem

You don't have to do anything
You don't have to create
You don't have to clean the house
You don't have to push yourself

All you have to do is take care
Of your mental health, your body
Of those you love, of those that
Surround you, be kind

You don't have to worry
You don't have to force yourself
To do something just because
You did them before the pandemic

You have never lived through
All this anxiety before, at least 
I really hope you haven't, my dear
Just grant yourself peace

To be with yourself, to discover
What you love to do, what you
Would love to learn, explore
Within yourself, and be, you
