i am currently unemployed
it has been a challenging past month of getting serious
about changing my lifestyle
especially since i just arrived in a new, vibrant, exciting city,
where it costs money to breathe
although there always seems to be a nagging sense of want
i have come to realize that, i have everything i need.
i've come to appreciate that i have money to buy groceries every week,
and i can pay my rent
although i am starting to get a little stir crazy spending lots of time at home
i am lucky to have time in the day to go for walks,
and make art
i'm trying really hard not to take this spare time for granted
i'm lucky, for this short time, to be unemployed.
