Slow

I wake up

Thank God

Grab the phone

Swipe the screen

The alarm is now off

But I don’t move

Slow to inhale

Slow to exhale

The to-do list in my mind

Longer than my spine

I need to get up

I need to start my day

I roll over to sit up

The edge of the bed

I am stuck here

Slow to inhale

Slow to exhale

Feet on the floor

Resting in quicksand

I want to stand

I need to stand

So I do

Slow to inhale

Slow to exhale

The walk to the bathroom

The mint flavor on my gums

The water on my face

The look in the mirror

The reminder of who I am

Slow to inhale

Slow to exhale

I walk out refreshed

Believing in myself

I am

Strong

Loved

Outstanding

Worthy
