Close All The Doors

When it feels like you should be doing something,

When it feels like you should be somewhere,

When it feels like the world has expectations that you can’t meet,

Close all the doors, shut all the windows and draw all the blinds.

Do nothing

Go nowhere

Set your own expectations

Close all the doors, shut all the windows and draw all the blinds.

Just for an hour or so

Just to take a breath or two

Just to find some calm for you

Then open the doors, unlatch the windows and open the blinds

One day of quiet is permitted

One day of peace is allowed

One day alone is okay

Doors and windows are made to open and close; blinds are there to let in the light and keep out the dark.

Use them when you need to

Every now and then

Just be sure to shout out if you need to shut them for too long.
