TODAY

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Feb 14, 2018

Today is the day I do
nothing.
Though I'm not feeling
ill, sad or weak.
Today I will not reach
my full potential,
There will be nothing
to search for or seek.

Today is the day I'll
just keep breathing,
In and out, very slowly,
through my nose.
No cooking or ironing
or cleaning,
I'm not thinking of
washing any clothes.

Today I will not relate
well to my partner.
Today I will not get
involved
In finding glasses or
keys or wallets
Or helping to get the
crossword solved.

Today I won't 
volunteer for anything.
I will not strive to be
better at all.
I will not use the phone
or the laptop.
I won't answer the
door to a call.

Because this is my 
day for daydreaming.
For lounging, not 
battling a quest!
I don't want 
involvement or 
enrichment.
Today I just need a
rest.

Today is the day I
don't watch TV 
news.
Its always of doom
and gloom.
Repeats galore, I
don't adore,
So I'll just sit and 
sulk in my own 
room.
