I said I was busy..
Yet my truth was considered a lie,
For i was not spotted physically functional.
Yes, I was indeed busy..
But not in a way most people understand.
I was busy taking a deeper breath…
I was busy silencing depressing thought,
I was busy calming a racing heart.
I was busy calming a raging storm in my life,
I was busy picking up the scattered piece of my broken heart,
I was busy trying to heal my shattered soul,
I was busy battling to figure out the way forward in the midst of a hardship,
I was busy comforting my poor self…
Telling myself I am okay.
I was busy!
Yet, you won’t understand my busy,
Sometimes this is my busy,
And I will not apologize for it.
