Seriously, Sisters

Some of these mantras today
Shake my head
Curl my toes

Living my best life
Can I just take that pressure off?

Most days are hard enough
Loving my people
Caring for my responsibilities
Pursuing my passion

My best? That's a high standard
I cannot maintain
Climbing to the peak.
There's no air up there.

Don't look to me to
Make my past self jealous.
I want to see her
excited about, inspired by, proud of
her future.

The Do-Be-Do-Be-Do days are done
Lay down that finish line
I'm going to take my time
