I’m not to go the BYU ward,
but to our home ward.
I’m to build relationships with
family, friends, and ward sisters.
I’m only to go to school
one afternoon a week.
I am to do the Visiting Teaching report
My exercise is to be moderate
and my medication sufficient.
I’m not to worry about gardening.
I’m to manage a simple home
making it a sanctuary of beauty.
I’m to live my sort of life with relaxed days
spent in writing and study.
I am to spend hours each day
on spiritual study and thought.
Will I be able to travel?
I don’t know.
But I do know that rushing and pushing
Struggling to meet others’ goals
is to cease.
And as I follow the soft, still voice
it will lead me to peace.
