ISOLATION (Ch#3: Just one thing)

Be patient, embrace the isolation,

A must if you’re missing propinquity,

Let go of thoughts of recrimination.

Wallow not in regrets, nor self-pity.


Build a routine if you’re feeling downcast,

Write poems, do mental arithmetic,

Fret not for tomorrow, nor what has past.

Exercise; keep your body and mind fit.


Everyone fears; seeks hope; aspiration,

Yet hand back the knife that’s dropped at your feet,

With free will and without hesitation.

Non-violence ensures your release feels sweet.


Be grateful for books, some paper, and pens,

Write your own story; share life through your lens.
