Sitting in bed and feeling not so great
I pick up my notepad to try to write
It’s not going so well
Then okay, let’s do some gratefulness exercises
I guess it’s supposed to make you feel better.
But today, I’m just not feeling it
I feel like sitting still, and crying for hours
But I don’t, cause I’m better than that
I remind myself that it could be worse
I remind myself that it’s not the end of the world
There’s hope, there’s life.
I focus on love. God’s love.
And I start to feel a bit better
Moves my attention away from the things that hurt
Causes a knowing
That there’s someone else in the room
Comforting, helping, telling me it’s going to be alright.
There’ll be better days
Yes, I believe
I choose to.
