To be ok

today I would like

to be ok

to be able to wake up

look forward

face the day

today could be different

i could smile

look around without fear

stay and chat for a while

today I could not lose myself

in a cocoon of self indulgence 

masquerading as ‘me’ time 

that just means hiding ‘me’ from the world

today I could seize the moment

feel the sun and simply...feel

be what today meant me to be

instead if pushing today away

to curl up in the shadows 

today could be that day

the day to be ok

or maybe tomorrow...
