Not Today

by Yolanda Shabazz

Not fighting any causes
Verbally or otherwise
No soapbox got to get away
From absurdity, ignorance, and lies.

Need to renew my spirit
Practice greater self-control
Communicate with the natural world
Do something to rejuvenate my soul.

Have to touch the elements
Extract from something greater
Try to learn something profound
From the original Creator.

No conspiracies, distortions
Woe is us news
None of those recurring
Monday morning blues

Not today! Don't want to hear
How the world is on the brink
On my way to my favorite haunt
To relax, study and think.
