Mary Jesusa Villegas
The country music is playing
cradles the chaos
in my sleep
An hour of solitude
who I am
in this old, dying jeep.
My fairy godmother's words
troubles me way down deep
But at least I found a way
to be discreet
Such a technique
saved me from my last trip.
Life is not meaningless
so as to stress yourself
God is everywhere to bless
those who are anxious and stressed.
So relax a bit and take a rest.
Pursue peace of mind first
In these unhealed wounds
I am my own nurse
Was it God-given ability?
I just found out lately
Despite the anxiety
It was overwhelmingly easy
just to be me.
