What everybody needs is more time,
The ticking clock is a major cause of stress.
Despite this given pressure, I must take time for myself.
I cannot allow the feeling of guilt take that time from me
I take time to cherish me. I am allowed.
I do something for me, even if it’s only for an hour.
Is my self-image reliant on others?
Or is what I see in the mirror my truth?
Today, the mirror smiles.
