What can I say It's not my best day They come along once in a while It's not a big deal It's normal to feel Overwhelmed and unable to smile The stress' of life With everyday strife Can sure get you down in the mouth Think of the good things That make your heart sing Like an extended vacation down south It's always your call You're in charge of it all No excuses, no apologies, no jive talk Grab hold of the reigns And always remain The person in charge round the clock I may sound naive But this thought I will leave Feeling better getting things off my chest Must thank all you guys For support you provide This P-Soup is the absolute best © Jack Ellison 2013

    Poetry Soup is a great breeding ground for loving poets, we all love poetry and should love others that write poetry! And you are one that shares his love to other poets, and I share mine back to you freely Jack! I hope things get better for you within your life, as it seems that you might be struggling a little, remember that many of us here care and enjoy your creative poems! This one is quite masterful, a little different than your usual quatrains...but still totally awesome, Great Work!!

    A huge thank you my dear friend! My poem might have sounded a little more of a downer than I intended but perhaps my words were quite indicative of how I was feeling at the time. It takes a lot to get me down but it's a LOT HARDER to keep me down! My sincere thanks Russell!

    Hey, Jack! :) I'm glad you got things off your chest, and I was more than happy to be here to hear you vent! :) You are a dear, and I don't even want anything to get you down and rob us of your great sense of humor. Will hugs help? Sending you lots of those.
