A Bad Day

Im struggling on, am really low today, I wish my clouds, would go away! It just feels today, I cant raise a smile,
Not been this way, for quite a while!
Maybe I got a visit, from the black dog,
Or maybe just suffering, with a bit of brain fog?
But either way, as I go through my day,
Ill just be gentle, and feel my way, To take each single step, I find That it can challenge, both spirit and mind! But onwards and upwards, I ease myself on, Because I know, this wont last long!
By being hard on myself, I will not win,
So, I have to love me, to begin again!
To lift myself up, to face the light,
Sometimes thats hard, when you feel like shite! But deep down inside, I really do know, From the deepest shit, the best flowers grow! Life goes in cycles, it often repeats, Until we learn those lessons, and admit those defeats! But as time goes on, as history has shown, We can all look back, and see how weve grown!
It sometimes feels, were on a downward spiral And doom and gloom, are just going viral! Whats life about, what is the objective?
Its not often clear, theres little perspective!

Sometimes were up, sometimes were down,
And it feels like life, just goes round and round!
What is the meaning, what have we to learn?
From that feeling inside, thats just like heartburn! Those days when we notice, no laughter or mirth, And we feel disconnected, from heaven and earth, All we can do, is to sit down and wait, Acknowledge the darkness, till it starts to abate! The longer we sit, and welcome it in, The quicker we start, to feel light again! For its not until, we start to see,
We all have a dark side, thats how its meant to be!
We are all made up, of light and dark,
Like two ends of a magnet, it can pull us apart!
Like left and right, and up and down,
Like having a laugh, then wearing a frown!
So the sooner we see, we own a dark side too,
The sooner well recover, from feeling so blue! And to top it all, we all have a choice, To flick the switch, and use our voice! To ask for help, from our friends, For a problem shared, soon makes amends! So, if you too, feel down and alone, Get off your backside, and onto thephone!
