Wrapped in Today

Today, I am not dreaming big.

I am getting to tomorrow.

Today, I am not planning all the days, all the things.

I am getting to tomorrow.

Today, my plans are not grand.  They are simple, feed children, teach children.

I am getting to tomorrow.

Today, I am sitting on the edge, looking in the dark hole, gripping the edge.

I am getting to tomorrow.

Today, the thoughts are murky, but they are in order.

I am getting to tomorrow.

Today, I am choking on the bile my mind sends forth, but catching just enough breaths.

I am getting to tomorrow.

Today, I am swallowing my meds, asking them to be a little more magical than yesterday.

I am getting to tomorrow.

Today, I am doing the next right thing.

I am getting to tomorrow.

Today, I am praying for a brighter new dawn.

I am getting to tomorrow.

  2. Thank you Susan. I am playing with my writing a little more, working at the words some. I want to have a voice, I want to reach others.

    • Thank you. That has been my last 3 weeks. This battle has been way too hard, way too long. Today is a rough one, I want to run, but I stay and fight, for my girls, for my hubby.

  5. You are doing this. You are inspiring others and discovering your voice. Beautiful post, Charity!

  6. Sometimes that’s all we can do, just wait for tomorrow.
