Day 6 POEM: I'm Gonna Try

I'm Gonna Try, February 2, 2005

 

I woke up this morning,

Nothing too exciting

Nothing much is going on today

Except I’m gonna live.

 

It’s like my head is spinning

Spinning round and round

My feet are running ahead of me

And I can’t see the ground

Nothing can go my way

But I’m gonna try today

 

I’m getting ready to go,

Nothing seems to fit

Nothing looks right on me today

Except my ready smile.

 

I’m rushing out the door

And tripping on the floor

But I’m not going cry

I’m gonna try

 

It’s like my head is spinning

Spinning round and round

My feet are running ahead of me

And I can’t see the ground

Nothing can go my way

But I’m gonna try today

 

I feel all my problems,

Fighting to bug me

Fighting to ruin my life today

Except I won’t let them.

 

Although my head is spinning

Spinning spinning spinning

Spinning round and round

And my feet are running ahead of me

I can’t, no I can’t

Can’t see the ground

Nothing can go my way

Nothing can go my way today

Nothing can go my way

But I’m gonna try today

After sharing such a dark poem yesterday, I wanted something a little more cheerful... or at least one with hope, to share with you today.  It is normal for you to have good days and bad days and then those in between days. But sometimes when you have a run of bad days, it can take it's toll. Especially when you are struggling with depression or anxiety. But just like this poem shows us, we can keep pushing through and living. Look at the line in the first paragraph: Except I'm gonna live. Life is powerful. Chose it.
