Me Time (Poem)—Few Moments For Yourself

Chitrangada likes to express herself by writing fiction and poetry. Her writing reflects her mood and is inspired by the beauty of nature.

Having some, Me Time

Having some, Me Time

Have some, Me Time—

She wanted to be alone,

Alone with herself,

With a quiet silence,

Nothing wrong with her,


Sometimes, you need that,

To have your own space,

To introspect, to reflect,

To disengage, to de stress,


At times, you need your own company,

Just to sit leisurely, doing nothing,

To unwind, to unplug,

To ease off, to loosen up,



Stop the speculation,

Stop being judgemental,

Stop the analysis,

Stop the disapproval,



There is nothing wrong with her,

Her life, or her relationships,

Her attitude, or her behaviour,

Leave her alone and at peace,



Let her take a break,

Let her exist, and not just coexist,

Let her believe, that she matters,

Let her have her 'Me Time.'

Enjoy some ‘Me Time’

Enjoy some ‘Me Time’

Very nice message through your wonderful lines. Chitra, I appreciate you for coming up with this appropriate and needy message. One should have his own time definitely, a peaceful meditating time looking into his inner mind and soul. It's very important if one has to assess himself and develop. It is also a good break for observing nature and the wonders of celestial powers.

Lora Hollings on August 11, 2020:

What a lovely poem with such an important message! We all need to be alone at times- to think, to meditate, to just unwind and relax. We all need to get off the carousel of life at times and your poem expresses this need so well, Chitrangada. Thanks for sharing!

Rosina S Khan on August 10, 2020:

Yes, having "Me Time" is important for anybody. You get to reflect, ponder and de-stress with no one disturbing you. It is at these times you get Eureka ideas too for life's issues/solutions. Fabulous poem, Chitrangada!

FlourishAnyway from USA on August 10, 2020:

Terrific topic and an even better poem. Especially during the pandemic when there is so much stress and we are in close quarters for too long, time alone is essential.

Kurt Frazier Sr from Mobile, Al on August 10, 2020:

Very well said. I think that many of us get so busy with the other things in life that when we do have me time, we don't really know what to do with it.

I definitely benefit from 'Me Time' and your lovely poem describes this need for time alone perfectly.
