Poetry: So. Easy.

Some more poetry for you my dearest nerdlets!

This poem was first published in the Medium publication The Brain Is A Noodle (TBIAN), for the prompt 'The Cost of Rest' set by Lucy Dan (editor of TBIAN)

But, of course, my Dora Reads nerdlets must not be allowed to miss out on my poetry-ness! Lol.

So. Easy.

So easy
For you
You just have to do it
It’s the way the world works —
Just hop to it!
If you want results, girl,
you’ll have to put in the work!
Don’t you dare
choose to shirk.
So easy for you.


So easy
for me?
When it feels like trudging
through sludge
just to figure out
what button I

When it feels like
a million thoughts
are buzzing
— refusing to coalesce
into cognitive
logic —
and it takes
an hour
to do
a ten minute task?


Yes, so easy for me.
To force myself to rest.
Knowing I must. (I must, I must…)
When any pause for breath
Is taken
as a sign
of laziness.

If this is laziness,
It’s not so easy.
