Poems, Thoughts

we need time

we need time to recuperate
not only from a physical wound or illness
but from the mental stress
we have to put ourselves
through at work or school
and not everyone recuperates
at an equal pace
so when you told me five days
should have been enough to relax
you forgot to understand
what i was going through
when you told me a month’s rest
should prepare me for the world
you forgot to observe my silence
during my recuperating period
when you told me i’ve slacked too much
you forgot to ask me what i really wanted
i needed time for myself in ways i can only
decide but your advice would have been
welcomed if only
you understood.
