Having A Hard Day

Having a hard day
Sleepless last night
Thinking all that angers me
Keeps me up at night.

Not mine to control
Not mine
Yet I struggle
Struggle to let go.

Happiness evades me
Anger, frustration
He said
She did.

Why can’t they see
They’re not right
And I’m in the wrong place
Not where I want to be.

Difficult

September 9, 2015

Difficult to remember
And difficult to see
Not the best to my heart
I struggle to become
The best that I can be.

No glory accompanies the procession
No marching band marches
Alongside of me
It’s difficult to remember
It’s difficult to believe in me.

This Morning I’m Struggling

April 4, 2014

This morning I’m struggling
Unsure, crushing blur
Can’t see around the bend
Can’t see free or happy.

Looking, trying to see
Be the good in this my journey
But this morning
It evades me.

Only feel failure, sadness
Struggling, struggling
Just don’t know
What or where I should go.

A lot have it worst I know
Makes me feel guilty
For I know I’m blessed
Have so much, so many opportunities
Yet this morning I struggle
I’m struggling.
