Sit and stare…

Today is a let’s not think day!
Let’s just be day!

Today, I feel tired
My brain needs a rest!

Today I do’t want to solve
The mysteries of the universe!
Today, I’m trying to be content to just sit and stare…

Tiredness is tolerable
If you don’t expect too much of yourself
Tiredness is OK if all you do is sit and stare…

But the problem is that I’m restless, impatient
And I get easily bored
I can’t just sit and stare…

My brain wants to be active
I like to learn, examine, discover, and express myself!
And when I’m tired
Everything comes to a stop and I feel constrained!

Today I need to be like Cashew
Our relaxed, chill dog
Who can sit and stare into space
For a long time…

Needless to say
I don’t understand Cashew’s ways
How she doesn’t get bored…
Nevertheless, today
The best thing to do is not to do much
Not to expect much
Not to complain so much…
Today, I will try to just sit and stare…
And recuperate…
