It's not just you

Other people find this hard too

Other people spill their coffee before the first bleary-eyed sip

and believe they’re unusually clumsy

Other people get to the till

only to discover

their wallet is still on the kitchen table

Other people fret if this is the right way to spend their lives

thrown into panic by comparison with

Other people, who lie awake at 2am

remembering that excruciating thing they said five years ago

Other people stare down their own reflection

and tell it sternly that no one else is like this

that other people have got it together

But what if 

you invited your anxious heart

to sit and drink tea

and listen in silence to the birdsong instead?
