Take Care of Yourself

Be patient with me says the soul

It’s not easily broken but it isn’t

Without fragility

Be compassionate with me says the spirit

I come built with endurance

But every now and then

I do get a bit weary

Take consideration with

How you labor me

Says the body

For my nature

Is made to work

But there are times

I need replenishment

Take note of how

You inform me

says the mind

For I am capable of

Holding an abundance

Of universal proficiency

But every so often

I’m in need of a reset





Function with respect to one another

But simultaneously move in totality

Take care of one

And the rest will inevitably

Surrender to the other
