Save It For Another Day

Deep inside me I hear that voice
It keeps sayin 'Happiness is a choice"
But the demons still won't leave me alone
Beating on the hardened stone

Can't seem to make them go away
Showing themseves in the light of day
Echoes deep inside my brain
Trying to drive me insane

When I dare to look just over there
See the One hiding with that blank stare
Hear that voice inside my head
The little girl who's still not dead

Whisper ever so lightly in my ear
Warnings of omens "listen to me my dear"
Smell the odor so strong upon the floor
"Only a fool would go yonder and open that door"

Of course you're so much stronger than that
But to the Demons I do tip my hat
Gullible and stupid I once might've been
And for a tiny small moment I let them slip in

Twas only the tip of the iceberg to melt
Just a little heat that was felt
Can't let myself get all carried away
So it's better to save it for another day

    I like the first verse that says happiness is a choice. it has to be done on purpose i think, with all the negativity, and wrongs in society. great poem

    Another gem Scarlett, as Carolyn commented, you are bringing your own freshness to the Soup >> James

    Like the way you compartmentalize your stress by saving "it for another day." We should all learn to be so wise. Indeed, happiness is a choice. Very insightful, Scarlett. You bring a fresh voice to the Soup! Love, Carolyn
