I can be in a room of fifty

and feel like I'm the only one there

I'll always choose happiness

but there still seeps in some despair


I have a whole lot of love

in my home, life and heart

but occasionally I can't fight the sadness

So I reach out to people and thwart


The feelings that jeopardize the

hard fought for joy inside of me

the loneliness is but temporary

As I'm reminded of all I have come to be


This is not a setback

Maybe a bump in the road

I will persist and persevere

Put my blues in 'reset' mode

      The loneliness is but temporary.

      I love that. Unfortunately, temporary, can still be a long time.

              Christina, you are a boat on the ocean of life. So what happens? You dip into the troughs, then rise atop the waves, only to dip again and to rise again, all the while making progress. So don't worry, after each dip follows a rise!

              • Christina8

                Thank you so much for your kind advice Fred! I know it was just a bad day. I appreciate it more than you know. Thanks again! Christina

                  We all have 'bumps' in the road of life but those bumps once surmounted become part of life's experience and make us stronger as we move forward in our lives.

                  Good write with a positive ending Christina.
