finding my way home

Feeling very out of touch lately

With myself

And the world around me

Running from one thing to the next

Spending more hours that usual working

Not giving myself time to rest, process, breathe

My body brought on the warning signs strong this weekend

Forcing me into bed when I had other plans in mind

Sucking me of my energy

Bringing on strong waves of pain

Why does it take all of that to slow me down?

Why do I run so quickly?

Push myself so far?

I am not a superhero

I cannot do it all

Even if I want to

I am just one person

I can only do as much as I can do

There are times when I need time to just be

To stop for a minute and breathe in life

So now I need to find my way back to myself

Turn on the inner search light

And seek out the girl who has been running

I need to clear my calendar and schedule in some time alone

I have not picked up my pen in awhile

My heart and soul are yearning for me to write

There are so many words and feelings that want to come out

So many lessons I have been learning

That need to be expressed

So the search is on

To find my way home
