life is one thing

It Could Have Been Worse

It Could Have Been Worse (Photo credit: Joe Plocki (turbojoe))

sometimes, life seems to be
just one thing after another
and so on and so on

and all of it has nowhere to go
so, it just piles up all around you
until it is getting pretty deep

and every time you turn around
something seems to come out of nowhere
often, from your blind side

and some things you can’t help but step in
because you didn’t notice what was around you
until it was too late

still, you’re sure that it’s got to get better
because it simply can’t get any worse
but, you know, you could be wrong about that

    Last few weeks have seemed to be one thing after another. So, I took a couple days off of work at the end of last week. Today, I was talking to a friend at work about it and he said you really looked like you needed a vacation last week which inspired this little dreary thing. 🙂

    Wow, does this resonate! Wonderful and real writing, loved it! I just recently wrote something similar and while I usually end with hope, this one didn’t and I’m not sure if I’ll leave it that way…It’s not on my blog, though, still in the editing process. 🙂 Yours kept us wondering, too!

      Hi san! I’m clumsy so I’m always stepping on things. 🙂

    No question about it, sometimes it’s just sh*#&y!
    ..Stepping in it all the time but I try to rememeber that it makes good fertilizer, and perhaps I’ll grow tall and strong.

      Fertilizer! 🙂 I hadn’t thought of that. What a great perspective to have.
