Resist

I must resist over-scheduling
Adjust my calendar too
Then my life will be simpler
A different point of view.

For people in my life
I want to help them all
But I must look at why
Or I certainly will fall.

The abyss of overwhelmed
And heaviness upon me
The burden on my shoulders
Is hard to manage you see.

So if I look beyond
At what is happening inside
The temptation to do it
Won’t continue to abide.

Perhaps it’s just a wound
I carry inside of me
Maybe I am rescuing
That part of me you see.

Looking at my schedule first
And then examining why
Will help me feel better
Releasing a big sigh.
