The Pledge

Posted by & filed under Poetry.

pledge

I, [fill-in-the-blank],
promise to take better care of myself.
I will eat food that nourishes my body.
I will make time for rest that renews my energy.
I will get enough sleep to allow my body to heal.
I will take deep, slow, breaths to fill myself with oxygen,
breathing out any stress.
I will move my body to keep my bones solid,
my muscles strong,
and my joints fluid.
I will fill my mind with the positive,
and walk away from the negative,
after first trying to infuse it with light.
I will pursue a spiritual life,
to feed my soul.
I will walk in nature,
think the best of others,
speak with kindness,
overlook with grace,
and always,
yes always,
forgive.
