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.

Genesis 1-5

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 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.

God said, “Let there be light.” And there was light. God saw that the light was good. He separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day.” He called the darkness “night.” There was evening, and there was morning. It was day one.

TTFN and God Bless you and keep you
