Lighten the load. (a poem)

mar8-poem-LightenLoad

When a cold or flu makes us cough, congested and sneezy,
It is a sign that we should drink lots of fluids, rest, and take it easy.

Lighten the load,
Before we explode
With something worse
Down the road.

Exquisite self-care is what we need to stay robust.
A balanced schedule and diet is an absolute must.

Lighten the load,
Before we explode
With something worse
Down the road.

We need to stop before we become achy or beat.
Let us always give our bodies and spirit an occasional retreat.

Lighten the load,
Before we explode
With something worse
Down the road.
