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.
