Those Days

Sometimes
it's hard
not to start a post
with the word 'sometimes'.

Today
is one
of those days.

Sometimes
I can feel
the energy
that is generated
by the turning of the world
flowing all around me.

Today
is one
of those days.

Sometimes
it seems
like nothing will ever change
at the same time
that I realise
how much has changed
in such a short space of time.

Today
is one
of those days.

Sometimes
I get so caught up
in trying to work out
whatever it is
that I'm meant to be
working out
rather than
just getting on
with my one true purpose
which is
to just be me.

Today
is one
of those days.

Sometimes
I feel
a million miles away
from the people
I am closest to.

Today
is one
of those days.

Sometimes
I am so damn tired
and I don't even seem
to have done anything at all.

Today
is one
of those days.

Sometimes
I just can't help
wasting time
on things
and making myself
late for where ever I'm meant to be.

Today
is one
of those days.

Sometimes
I feel the irrepressible drawing
of addictions
in many forms
and I am consumed
by a burning passion
to submerge myself
in those desires.

And I am forever grateful
that today
is NOT one
of those days.

An interesting day, overall. Not "interesting" as in the Chinese curse; interesting as in an eye-opening and self-revealing way.

hear, hear !
I know your day so well and at the end, if we can just fight down those addictions, that is all it takes to make a good day xxx
