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.
