take it down a notch

today there’s nothing urgent on
no need to hurry or respond
to anything but what i want
and what i want is rest
i used to be a ball of fire
tight strung like
a piano wire
but lately i’ve been
relishing my peace:
i have progressed
i’ve learned to
take it down
a notch
i’ve learned to
let things pass
i’ve learned to
take my shoes off
and walk barefoot
in the grass
