The day has come .

Yes I have held my peace for so long

and now .......I am hurting ,hurting so very bad

my skin is even hurting

my eyes are sunken in with despair

for they have lost their twinkle, their glare

my heart does not beat right anymore

I feel it inside as if it were outside of me

with every memory there is pain ,

it is not you anymore

IT IS ME ! Me................. YES ! is

I must let go of everything that is making me feel depressed

everything that is keeping me from laughing and smiling again

for I need laughter in my life better than before

Bring this day to me as a comfort I pray,

at times more often then I deserve

You left me and you left us ...

because you said you could not handle the stress

why I really don't care anymore

I am just glad you are one less stress I have to worry about now

for the matter of fact it don't bother me anymore

all I know is that I have to fix me Now

and Now ! better be fast

For my body and mind can not function right

for my heart does not beat the same way as before

and in my world I have dug a hole

I must not fall in ..... I must not

OK ! OK ! I HEAR YOU !!!!!!

My body and Mind scream at me within


Come at me if you dare

but I will let you pass this time and forever

from.... bill collectors to doctors to lawyers call me if you dare

I will take a deep breath and breathe calm

as you give me the same words of discouragement and despair

I will not hold what you have to say in my thoughts

I will breathe and let it all out as if you were smog in my lungs

Deep Breathe .................Sigh !!!!................

SEE ! I feel better now

Why did I let this go so far....

I have never been like this before

People that I have never met

feel it in my writings

and hear it in the words I write

I would write and the stress was there in pencil lead staring at me

as if I was not the one that wrote it

READ ! READ it !................

I would and answer as if I were helping someone else

Just don't tell my secrets of making it through the day

Please don't !

Not that I mind. It is just that it seems to really work for me

TO WRITE ! WRITE !............... Yes this is what I know best

This is how I got through the pressures that weighed me down before

and now my body and mind are screaming loud


I will take care of me

I will give me....... some me time

start breathing in a different way

when the pressures are up

stress is not funny nor is it safe

I never had my body and mind scream at me like this before

It is just one trial after another with no breathing room

Make room ! I say

take it in smaller steps and with a pace that most won't understand

Keep my head up and look them in the eyeI


Lost my job , last unemployment check , newly divorced after 28 years ,flipped my truck , hurting inside and out , medical bills, and a kidney transplant in the near future for my child ....

There I said it .............. sigh!!!!!!!!.................... I can breathe now ........I can think .............

OH ! I am not complaining . I am just trying to figure this all out as i write it for the first time


like I said before I will go back and

READ ! READ it ! what I wrote

and answer as if I was helping someone else


OK ! OK ! ..............I HEAR YOU !!!!!

Just let it go and take a deep breath ....... Breathe ..... and ......SIGH !

There I did it ....I feel much better.....

      Thank You my fellow Hubbers and HubPages and again from all of you that read and leave comments or feed backs ..for years I have never shared what I write but with just a small handful of people and Now I am sharing everywhere and with many I have no idea of whom they may be .. It is like butterflies in my heart and soul that have been finally released after all these years

      Great description captures how I was feeling yesterday with a sick child and husband and trying to get the Christmas baking done.Once again ~I reverted to my old release if I'm stressed get up around 3 am cup of tea and write. It might be nonsense but if always works. Good Job

      I feel better now. I hope you do too. Writing is therapy and a lot cheaper than a psychiatrist.

      Oh, my! There YOU did it ....I feel much better, too! Writing lets the inner out where it has to face the light of day and can be dealt with. Keep going. You are galloping!
