Take a Break

Take a break!
Said the Soul to the Mind.
Take a respite from the trouble and the toil.
Its becoming a bit too much for me, you know. 
The way you go on and on with worrying,
Always hurrying from one pointless point toward another.

Take a break!
Agreed the Spirit.
Let me soar with the eagles!
You've got me wallowing in your self pity and sorrow.
I can't see beyond that far horizon - my hopes and my tomorrows.
And so what if you've been troubled far beyond what you can handle,
Let it go!
