I feel like I want to scream.
But not a bad scream.
Not one where I am waking from a bad dream,
Or try and keep awake,
Or can’t fall back asleep.

No today I want to scream, I feel o.k.
Its been a long time,
Since I felt like this,
Usually anxious, or late for breakfast
But today…I feel ok.

Maybe it’s the winds of the eclipse,
Or the trees breeze swaying in tune.
Maybe it’s the watery teardropped moon.
Maybe it’s the sinking song, that sounds in tune.
Maybe its August, Maybe it was June.
Maybe it is Hawaii, I’ll be there soon.

Hope this feeling lasts,
Cause sometimes I don’t feel hope at all.
But I am optimistic for Fall.
I am optimisitic, I am not beaten.
Your slings and arrows came close
But no you did not defeat me.

I am happy.
And that’s a good thing.
Manic Monday Mood Swing.
I feel better.
Knowing one thing.
I breathe. I can change. I am Someone
Not nothing.

Maybe not king.
But not an understudy.
No….I am not everything.
But I am somebody.

And I guess I will have to play it where it lays.
Sushine, Wintry Haze, Harvest Moons, and Rainy Days.
