Time to Heal
poem of burn out
Tired ,Exhausted , Numbed to the core
Flat not thinking, Walking daily through this dream
Not feeling or wanting to be seen
Yet wanting someone to notice the lack
The lack of life in your eyes and your back
Knowing this is the road you chose
Those around you don’t see it any differently though
To them, you are the same as you have always been
You hold everyone together
Or that’s how it seems
The years roll by in your numbed robotic state
No longer can you hide the flatness
You want need to escape
You realise you are Burned out and anxiety is on the rise
This is how you have lived
You were trained very young to give, give, give!
As you draw back the giving
You find it hard to receive
But receive you must
If you wish to breathe
Slowly at first tiny baby steps
You ask for help
Receiving is foreign It's not in your training to accept
Yet your heart sings open
Yes Yes yes!
This is right this is true
This is how it must be
Find the support and let it open you
Let the support be your guide
Let yourself begin to take deep dives
What do you love
What is it you wish to create
What is your Journey if not to keep everyone together and be the maid
Taking care of others was trained and grained in
Now its time to refocus, repoint be renewed
Let the guidance of others and the burnout heal away
Let yourself feel alive when you love what you do and create
You’re here to learn and grow
To co-create in new ways
To change the lives of others
Through many new ways
Your time has come, your lessons powerful
Believe and trust
Have faith it will all be clear
Your life will be full of joy, love and fun.
No longer fear
Co-creation is the way forward and your new crown.
