Let it breathe

If only we could enjoy the little moments

when my homework site is loading and I’m waiting

but my music is already playing

and I have nothing to complain about

because I’ve finished deciding what to do first

and though the task is on its way to completion, I’m not technically doing my homework yet.

In those 68 seconds I’ve got nothing to do (except wait) and nothing to feel but peace

but instead, that peace drowns in the overlap

under the soggy downspout of surrounding stress or exhaustion

but instead, we insist on wasting the drive to work and

hating the line at the grocery store.

suffocating our inspiration when

if for just a moment we would exhale

it would too
