How I hate the way I feel today,
I just want everything to go away.
Don't know if I am angry or sad ,
All I know is that it feels real bad.
Everything is so mixed up inside ,
Confused by it all I just want to cry.
Closing my eyes trying to get some rest,
Doesn' help much getting only moments at best.
Hoping for nightfall is what I want now,
Praying tomorrow will be better some how.
How I hate these days when I am down ,
Wishing nobody would ever come around.
Asking myself why I am in this mood,
What will it take to change my attitude.
Surely there is something to make me smile,
I wonder if there is because it's been awhile.
Reading the book to maybe see my way through,
It doesn't help either I am still feeling blue.
Listening to others and what they have to say,
Changes nothing at all I still feel this way.
Why are there days I feel so down and out ,
Makes me want to just scream and shout.
Wait for the morning sunrise is what I'll do,
Possibly then I will be able to talk to you.
Oh how I do not like the way I feel today,
It's just the worst ever feeling this way.
