How are you?

I lied and said I was busy.

I was busy;

But not in the way most people understand.

I was busy taking deeper breaths.

I was busy silencing irrational thoughts.

I was busy calming a racing heart.

I was busy telling myself I was okay.

Sometimes, this is my busy and I will not apologise for it.
