The Color of the Sunset

I stand in the sand, soft and moist,

Feeling the breeze in my hair.

Then coral and blue in the sky above

Flash these words to me:


You don’t have to do to feel the joy.

You don’t have to fear you aren’t good enough.

You don’t have to smile to cover the pain.

You only need to be.


You don’t have to do the mothering right.

You don’t have to be so good.

You don’t have to please everyone in sight.

You only need to be.


You don’t have to do to enjoy me.

You don’t have to get it right.

Don’t force a smile; just relax for a while.

You only need to be.


You don’t have to do;

It’s waiting for you.

Look past it all

And enjoy me!
