I hope

You learn


To come home

Safely

Whatever it is that you’ve been chasing

Be it the butterflies, or your lofty dreams

After an adventure or apathy.


To not fret or fume

Over anything at all.

No matter what, consequential or petty

They fade into insignificance after all

This, you have witnessed yourself.


To pick yourself up, dust your hands

And continue with your head held high

As I may not be there always

To lift you up

It is the turn of the naysayers now

To break down.


To laugh at yourself

Now this, is humour at its best.

To err is human

To laugh is human too

The Divine is gladdened

That you trust and appreciate

His design.


To sing

To feel yourself,

Anoint, heal or soothe yourself

The megacosm mesmerized

Kindred spirits ignited

Heart and soul serenade

In unison.


To put yourself first on your priority list

Above the rest

To say NO imperatively

Before they walk upon all over you


But that is selfish, you would exclaim

Sure yes! But darling,

Trust me when I say

That is self love.

You come first

And the rest come second, at best


I hope you learn!
