I realised

staying indoors

is not that bad

recuperate, rejuvenate and relax

could be done as well

I do what I want

having all the time for myself

and family of course


I had it

when it was limited

but never realised

never used it well

never bothered

there was rushing and hurrying

to catch up on everything

to complete everything

the rat race


now, I have it again

no time is a lot of time …

time to be with loved ones

the hugs and care

time to reflect upon myself

the good and the bad

time to do what I like

read, yoga, bake and cook

time to explore and experience

the corners of my home

which can be beautiful than the outside world

staying indoors can be fun.
