I find it hard to be kind to myself

Even when I’m feeling ill.

I know I should slow down a bit

And take it easy, but still…

I have a book to write and lectures to give

So I can’t afford to slow down.

Now my neck is tense and knotted up

And my face wears a permanent frown.

I didn’t sleep at all well last night

And this morning I felt really rough.

But today I had to keep on writing.

This deadline business is rough.

But I finished today’s writing work early,

So as a reward I decided to take

Some clothes to Goodwill, and then have a massage.

I really needed a break!
