Relaxation Is My Hobby - Poem by Charmaine Williams

Come on and get in the mood.
Close your eyes and think of all the things that’s good.
Begin by writing in a journal and I’ll tell you why,
It’s something therapeutic about getting your thoughts on paper, it may seem childish but give it a try.

You’re encouraged to light candles of all sorts:
tea lights, glade or even ones that glow in the dark.
Go ahead and light your aroma therapy candle,
Don’t worry about things you can’t handle.

Allow the melody to move your feet,
They say music calms the savage beast.
India Arie, Stevie Wonder or Sade
Come on Calgon, Calgon please take me away.

With each bubble let all your cares and worries dissolve
There is nothing that you and God together can’t solve.
Don’t even worry about wearing pajamas to bed.

Just lie there in your nudeness, unrestricted
Stop thinking about that dude you didn’t get with.

So now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for everlasting love, joy and peace until my heart takes it’s last beat.
Enjoy these moments of pleasure and savor every drop.
Because they come few in number and too damn far apart.

Before you know it Monday will be here,
Back to the same old bullshit,
I think I’m gonna shed a tear.
