Conserve your energy.
You never know when you may need it.
Keep the waters above the red line.
You don’t want to dry yourself out.
Remember to switch the lights off.
You shouldn’t be wasteful.
Your resources are limited, you know.
Do you feel trapped?
Do you feel strained?
That’s okay. Life feels like that,
Remember, even that which you hate
Must be cultivated and taken care of.
You never know when you’ll need it.

    • Thank you, Joy. I think that what I was writing about and the way it came out are actually very different – I was in a very black mood when writing this, but it seems to have become a different poem than what I thought it was. It’s interesting when that happens.
