Getting everything together has been hard in my life,
every time something gets better,
something else turns out not to be right.
I try to see the good in things,
but instead all i see is bad,
even on my weakest days,
I try my best to not be sad.
Keeping my head up is a struggle at times,
because of the negativity i think in my head,
or thinking back to hurtful things my mother has said.
But the past is the past,
and i need to learn how to leave it at that,
but sometimes it can be hard to forget,
especially the words with the most intensified hit.
I have so many blessings to be thankful for,
and a great family that could not be better,
getting everything together is going to be tough,
but i'll keep working on it and get there soon enough.
