Escape

One thing after another

The problems compound

But I still have a way to escape

And keep my sanity

 

A walk in the sunshine

A breath of fresh air

The birds singing

The flowers blooming

 

So I stop the chaos for a moment

And then return to face the troubles

If only you would see the truth

And admit your part in this

Until then I am alone in this battle

Alone With Myself…

No one to talk to

My friends are all gone

Off to their own lives

I am left with none

 

No one to talk to

My friends are all gone

Drifted away to better people

I am left with none

 

No one to talk to

My friends are all gone

Somehow offended by me

I am left with none

 

No one to talk to

My friends are all gone

Alone with my problems

I am left with a ton…

Day 97 – 100 Days of Happiness

I had dinner tonight with two dear friends.  One was a big help to me when I was going through my cancer treatments and the other has been a friend for years from work as well.  It had been far too long since we had gotten together to talk so dinner stretched out more than 3 hours!  We had to catch up on how our families were doing… and let’s just say it has been a bad year.  We decided tonight that 2017 has to be better… murder (of a family pet), suicide attempts, health crisis, alcoholism, etc.  We decided we should write a soap opera based on our lives as things have been so rough it is hard to believe.

But we got out laughter and tears.  Leaned on each other a little and exchanged wishes for a great Christmas and a MUCH better New Year.  We promised to get together more often and stay in touch.  It was a wonderful night with good food and great friends.  …now bring on that better New Year!
