She has had enough

Life is too chaotic

She must find a way

To focus on calm

To find clarity again

To once more be centered

She draws a bath

And sinks into the warm waters

The tub like a comforting hug

Breathing deeply

She feels peace

Slowly wash over her

Like sun breaking through

On a cloudy day

She washes away

The ugliness of the day

The hate and lies she’s faced

The evils of society

And the sadness she feels

She stays until the waters grow cold

And she is finally relaxed

Hoping it will last

She steps out

Clinging to the feelings

Of an inner harmony

And she thinks she will make it

Through one more day
