Some days are better than others.
Sometimes I can even nearly forget.
But it never takes long to remind me.
That right away I cannot ever get.
Somedays it’s just
as I’m counting my blessings.
Sometimes this is
what makes me see.
For what makes me aware
of how lucky I am
also reminds me
of just how black
it has been.
There is no light without darkness.
Without the daytime there is no night.
But being aware of the contrast
doesn’t really help me
to make things alright.
Life is truly
a grand roller coaster.
There are no great heights
without true depth.
Does it mean then that the more
I’ve enjoyed myself
just how deep
the unseen scars get?
Still some days are better than others.
Sometimes I can nearly even forget.
If it’s only for a wee while,
then I will take it and smile.
For it might just be all that I get?
