It’s Not Every Day

It’s not every day,
that you know you have the power
to succumb to the pressure
like a dying flower.

It’s not every day,
that you can step away from it all
and wonder how far down you can fall
as you bang your head in the nearest wall.

It’s not every day,
that you have anything left to say
or one more reason to pray,
or wish to stay.

But it is today,
that you are still alive and well
survived the night, in decent health
and that is a tribute to your enormous strength.

Because today is your day,
where the sun shines over your acre,
and you are like the force of nature,
with your personality’s sparkling splendor.

Today is the day,
that you bare the truth,
without saying adieu,
you know that you are still you.
