Best Friends

I felt that it was selfish to think about myself,
I tried but I just could not ever see,
I felt like I should leave my feelings on the shelf,
For others mattered way much more than me.

It took time to learn but I learned the lesson well,
I paid the consequences over time,
I have my “warning signals” so that I can tell,
The needs I need to care for most are mine.

I see it all so clearly when I take the time to look,
This madness hadn’t happened overnight,
Looking in the mirror I could see the toll it took,
But now I am about to put that right.

I check my “Action Plan” to keep a little check,
Is my daily routine always taking place,
Am I procrastinating?…always saying not yet,
Have I missed what is staring me in the face?

I’ve found the ability where before I had none,
I recognise emotions rise in me,
I always make time to have a little fun,
To be as silly as I want to be.

I know it isn’t selfish if I need some time out,
I no longer leave my feelings on the shelf,
I’m helping my best friend and of that I have no doubt,
My best friend had to firstly be myself.
