Today I . . .

Today I feel the weight

From all of my past mistakes

And I can't seem to find

The strength to do what it takes


Today I miss my mother

And I miss my daughters even more

One is gone and one is leaving

The pain I can't ignore


Today I feel unattractive

Though physically I look the same

I just feel so ugly inside

And my mirror is not the blame


Today I have no dreams

I can't seem to look past this minute

Right now I despise this world

And just about everything in it


Today I just feel empty

Or maybe numb is a better word

Don't know whether to cry or scream

They both seem so absurd


Today I feel so weak

As if Delilah has crossed my path

While I sit distraught and hurt

She just looks and laughs


Today I don't feel like writing

Poetry can sooth my nerves

The more I put pen to paper

I realize it's just rhyming words


Today I Praise God

For all my pain and sorrow

He loves me unconditionally

And Today will be yesterday Tomorrow
