Lifes journey




I think it’s a misconception,

It’s a myth,

What use is downtime


When the world keeps on turning?

What use is stopping

If you’re head goes on thinking?


When you’re laid up at home,

Feeling rotten,

Feeling rough.


When you’re resting your ills away,

When you’re trying to ease the pain,

When you’re just being lazy


Or dealing with life stresses

And strains.

What is downtime?


Is it the welcomeness

Of a soft bed or a comfy settee?

Or the harsh cold of a winter garden?


The warmth in the summer?

How about saunas and spas

Or beaches and cliffs?


Do you have downtime on mountain tops

Or hidden in trees?

Are you as one with nature?


Or as a group with the indoors

And electronics?

Is it better to be with or be without?


Would you rather company

Or to be left on your own?

With pets or without?


Purring or barking

Or blubbing away?

What would you rather


Or do you not care?

Do you stay positive

Or sink into depression?


What is downtime,

To you?
