Happy Saturday. Today is Poetry Saturday, and I’m sharing one of mine today.
We’ve had a week. So sometimes when I feel depleted its helpful to remember the simple things. I wrote this poem to remind myself that its okay to have hard weeks and that sometimes the simplest thing is just to be reminded that I’m breathing and that’s important.
Some days by Danie Weaver
Some days I’m attuned to the weather.
Tears reflect the raindrops
Smiles reflects the sun rays
Wonder reflects rainbows.
Some days my anger is all I feel
It clouds and crowds out my happiness
It discolors my world
Its fangs cause my heart, my head, and my soul to ache.
Some days I feel lost, drifting with no anchor or life jacket
Too scared to continue swimming
Too tired to keep shouting
To alone to find any help.
Some days I feel sad
Overcome with frustration that strangles
Overcome with loss and what ifs
Overcome with a grace that would save me
Some days I feel panicked
Something small lost into the blackness of my mind
Something huge too scared to let it go. will I miss it more?
Something broken, no way to fix it.
Some day’s happiness colors my days
Pushes my loneliness, anger, and fears away.
Reminds me how much it is worth to live
Everything seems vibrant
Some day’s loneliness is all I can feel
No one has checked in
No one cares
No one knows my sorrows
Some day’s normalness is my lifeline
Flying on autopilot is the only way of survival
Getting lost in fictional worlds provides space to breath
Just breathing reminds me I haven’t stopped surviving.
1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth didn’t have any shape. And it was empty. There was darkness over the surface of the waves. At that time, the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 God said, “Let there be light.” And there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good. He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day.” He called the darkness “night.” There was evening, and there was morning. It was day one.
