A Self-Care Poem

Georgic written by Maggie Ginther

Selfcare

 

Selfcare a necessary skill,
A skill forgotten and not taught,
Not taught till an overdose of pills,
 Till lives are being fought for.
Step one, sing your own praises,
Remember your worth and beauty,
As important as lipase,
Remind yourself its your duty.
Step two, read your favourite book,
Perhaps cause a giggle or a smile,
Snuggle up in your favourite nook,
A moment to be juvenile.
 
Have a nice warm bubble bath,
Forget your trials for the moment,
It will help bring back your faith,
Selflove is a requirement.
Meditate to remove ugly thoughts,
Allow yourself to be weigh less,
Something that is self taught,
The zone where you are shapeless.
 Go for a walk-in nature,
Feel the wind, it feels like freedom,
Maybe say hi to a stranger,
Life, it gives you a reason.
Pick up the phone and call a loved one,
Their voice will brighten your spirit,
 A little laughter is won,
This selfcare will make you fearless.
Some days will be very stressful,
Pour a cup of coffee and breathe,
Sometimes you’ll feel unsuccessful,
One day you will be, so just breathe.
Selfcare must be self taught,
Selfcare shows how much has been fought.
