Today I slept in

And then took a nap

I didn’t want to

Leave my bed

I didn’t want to

Do much of anything


Today I grew quiet

And withdrew from the world

I didn’t want to

Talk to anyone

I didn’t want to

Go anywhere


Today I focused on

All that is wrong

I didn’t want to

Hear about your joy

I didn’t want to

See any warm and fuzzy movies


Today I was depressed

And I hate where that takes me

I didn’t want to

Stay awake much of the day

I didn’t want to

Focus on anything



Will eventually get better

in a day or a week

somewhere down the line

there will be hope again

and a glimpse of sunshine
