Day 468: 5 Minute Freewrite: Thursday - Prompt: take care


Take care to take care of yourself
while going the distance
and doing the stuff
of your life

with life's miseries and glories
its exhaustions and rests
its blind sights and dead lives
its poor mortal living ghosts

it is for them I do this
for them I take care of myself
I care for my mind most of all
my health will follow if my mind
knows joyfulness

so sing! and dance!
Make art and make love!
Care for your charges
and care for yourself.

they are all one.

My first freewrite poem! A bit of Shakespeare crept in there. Things could be worse than channeling Shakespeare! Thank you for reading.
