Not feeling it today of all days
There’s no swag in my step,
Feeling some kinda way
It hurts, and it’s frustrating,
Like I got left behind
With no motivation,
Maybe it’s from a lack of sleep
Don’t know, but I can’t keep this negative notion.
Reflecting on my hopes and dreams
And what matters to me,
But, all of the things that never seem
Despite this flood of emotions, I gotta keep it moving
Maybe I’m tired from a long week,
Including these tears so they’ll stop flowing.
They surround me when they’re down
And yet, I easily lift them back up,
When obstacles surmount, I’m the fixer
Sometimes, I get tired of being positive.
When did it get so hard to be me,
Genuine, creative, and funny
Often willing, but to what degree,
And, at what cost to me?
Not sure how my day will end,
But, it has to begin, with me realizing that it’s not too late,
And shaking these ill feelings.
