Just for today

I’ll try to look my very best,

Put on makeup and be well dressed

Perhaps I’ll even relax and rest


Stop analyzing

Stop agonizing

Feeling unaccomplished and such

Feeling sorry for myself so much


Calm and focused I shall stay

And won’t let others ruin my day

I’ll laugh a lot and in my own way

Spread love and continue to play,


Just for today I’ll be no more

Too busy and ignore

The ones I love to my core,

For only with them I soar,


Today I’ll listen to a new song

I won’t feel stuck and move on

Know that I belong

Remember that I’m strong


So just for today I’ll sit in the sun

Maybe smile more and have fun,

Find time to paint and write

Engage only with what brings me delight


Create, love and explore

That’s what my life is for,

Just for today I’ll be good to myself

If not me, then who else?
