It doesn’t matter that you haven’t practiced in a day
or more than a year.
that you have money in the bank
or none at all.
a full time job that pays your bills on time
or freelance gigs that make you rely
It doesn’t matter
that you lost the weight.
gained it all back.
or are on a gluten free nut free soy free sugar free vegan diet
but all you want is a pepperoni pizza, dammit.
and a hot fudge sundae.
that you haven’t done the laundry yet.
and forgot to buy the dog food.
and call your mother last night.
All that matters is that
you are here,
in the tenderness of this moment.
