Shaving Away The Troubles Of My Day

One Day At A Time

The sun is shining

I should be grinning

My heart is filled with great ideas and solutions

Why do I feel so blah

Have I caught the pity me blues

I try to shake them like a dog with fleas

But no use

I wish there was a frontline medicine to control my sad feelings

Where my thoughts sink lower and lower

Like a toilet backed up

I have to see life a different way

Where did my frustration come from ?

It seemed to stick me while I slept

With a needle as long as your arm

It was not my fault

I could not of known

I was drugged by the unknown

Well lets not make any assumptions that are not true

How could this of happened ?

I went to bed like I always do

This time I tossed and turned and could not sleep

What were the troubles that lay on my mind

It was not the trouble that I found

I slept on my arm all night and my arm went numb

It led me to thoughts of pain and harm

My neck started to cringe

I was still asleep and didn't know

I thought it had to be a thought that aggrivated me so

That gave me an instant headache I could feel

A pounding and annoying one that would not leave

So I rolled over to compensate

My back began to ache

My cat seen my hand move under my sheet

She attacked me with all her claws out

I felt the sharp pain in my hand I couldn't quite describe

An intense pain I tried to hide

So I moved quickly from one position to the next

Now still wondering why my body aches

I feel my hand so sore I know I never did break

I am surrounded by love and why all this turmoil

I scratch my head in disgust

My cat once again thought I wanted to play

She attacked me as her claws fly

This time my head hurts

But why ?

I never get headaches

Maybe it was something I ate that didn't settle to well

I love pizza and so it couldn't be

As I roll over my pillow and on my crumbled sheets

The lump in my stomach that moved to my chest

I try to wake up as my eyes gain focus

I just had a big misunderstanding while I slept

My mind is now clear of any fear

The sun is out and the warming feeling is such a relief

The scratch on my hand and the cut on my head will heal

I can feel the circulation go back in my arm again

My back is stiff so I stretch it out a bit

I am up and this is one time it was better not to sleep

My day starts now and all good things are coming my way

So if your like me hop in a nice warm shower and get dressed

The quicker you get outside the sooner you will feel your best

Have a good day and I am glad I got that off my chest

carolinemd21 I thought of this hub while I was shaving and I cut myself and I was bleeding.I thought how is it that we can bleed so much and then when we heal it is easily fogotten like it never happened.So I splash a little water on my face and wash down the drain the old.I started with an ulgy unshaven face and ended up nice and smooth like a babies bottom.Life is something different and always a laugh.xstatic My shower is my savor.I step into a whole new world so refreshing and clean.My wife yells at me to get out because she is afraid if the drain ever clogs we will have a river in the house.So back to reality I step.I would be singing in the rain in Oregon.Well by now I hope the the sun is out.Nature can be unforgiving and powerful.I remember when it rained almost all month.I forgot what the sun looked like.Thanx everyone and have a great day.
