New Dawn


The old habits were creeping back in.
Inch by inch,
they started crowding the garden.
Sun blocked.
Clothes getting tight.
Ode to the muffin top.

When feeling low,
irony returns,
bad habits creep back in.
Nihilistic, self-destructive.
Feeding on the bad.
Out of focus.

Consume to feel fulfilled.
Pour something into the void.
Emptiness inside.

Amazing how feeling not
enough leads to gaining weight.
Packing on pounds to “have more,”
and fill oneself up.
Eating more when not enough.
Self-protective and destructive, all at once.

Stop the presses.
Where did we derail?
Getting back on track.
Yes,  there’s enough time.
5 minutes to juice.  You’ve got this!

Pulling weeds.
Taking stock.
Blocked Facebook mobile (again).
Return to fresh veggies (again).
Meditating twice per day (new dawn).
Writing more (again).

Working more at work;
more hours to the workday.
More work and less play.
Time for a shift.
Back to the center.
Asana, breathe.

Mediatate at night.
Earlier to bed.
Earlier and easier to rise.

Back to the basics.
Slowing down.
More love.
More compassion.
When first for self,
then more naturally for others.
