Tamara Willems

soak up some sun…

tentative or
transformational
how is it even
that
this
feels

does one feel as if the brakes
have suddenly been applied
or perhaps
you have been unceremoniously
shoved
to another lane

where you are left wondering
really, what
is it all
about

survival of the fittest
or fittest
of
the survival

how best to use one’s heart
to save
the world
from…   as it turns out

itself

informed the other night
that I
am in the vulnerable crowd
deemed,
old (says a twenty something)
once had pneumonia
sometimes suffer from allergy onset asthma

inspired
I am
instead

possibly the perfect blend
of fragility
and strength
turns out to be exactly
what holds me
together
my own beautiful bits
of glue

much to be pessimistic about
so many ready
to judge
fear feeds the fearful
makes one care more for the lepers

while I
still prefer the sunny side
of the street
even when
I’m the only one
on it

where simple compassion
feels like
therapy

and today’s beautiful blue sky
combined with the vibrancy of
new buds
feels like
love

and here, with all
we’ve been given

the perfect time
to
enjoy
this

space

as more of a blessing

than
a
curse

… May you, be well ♥
