Spring Cleaning

Figure with push broom sweeping

Distressed?

Oppressed?

Obsessed?

Depressed?

Repressed?

Suppressed?

Get rid of all those stresses

Banish all those presses

Remove all those sesses

Get rid of all those stresses

Add some blesses, progresses,

Impresses, and successes

Get rid of all those stresses

Banish all those presses

Gifts of Joy

Wrapped gift boxes

Declaring today my Deserving Day

I am gifting myself abundant joys

Giving those worries and woes away

Declaring today my Deserving Day

Claiming bliss and joy mine to display

As negativity my heart deploys

Declaring today my Deserving Day

I am gifting myself abundant joys

What do you deserve? Name it. All of it. What are you ready to let go of? Name that too. Then name the most gentle gift for yourself. Name the brightest song your body’s ever held. Summon joy like you would a child; call it home. It wanders, yes. But it’s still yours. —Rachel McKibbens

#NaPoWriMo 2019-Day 7-Prompt: Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem of gifts and joy. What would you give yourself, if you could have anything? What would you give someone else?
