Stop Stopping Yourself

Yes, we need to stop stopping ourselves, dive into your creativity.

Give our self-expression positivity.

Reconnect with those aspects we haven’t thought lately.

Nay, why not do something we enjoy, freshly?

Like time with loved ones spending,

In the air of nature breathing

 And among the trees and fields walking?


Really, we need to free ourselves

From invisible traps, bring freshness,

And breathe new life in us.

Experience wellness,

Mentally, physically,


And certainly emotionally 


Indeed, let us be the ruler of our kingdom’s space

While running life’s continuous race.

Ever and anon breathe into it freshness,

To be away from lethargy or restlessness.
