is not simple and sometimes

there are days when it seems so good and I just want to smile and thank the lord.

That today is a little easier for me and those around me.

For the stress has yet to become too much and that all you want to do is relax and not be so out of your mind.

You’re functioning but you are moving with the motion and you are not letting it get to you.

You become a brick wall and hope that nothing can knock you down for you don’t want to let the ugly of the world into your safe place.

You want to be yourself and not change because of the difficult things going on around you and with you.

You smile not because things will get better but because you believe and trust that it will all workout.

And so you try to focus on the simple and joyful things that come into your life and not worry about the other things that are out of your control.

For even though life is not simple, you like the moments when everything almost seems perfect and on its way to something greater.
