Hey Ladies!

Have you ever had a really bad day? Yeah, me too.
Here is a poem I created just for such an occasion:

Before I SCREAM

I won’t show that I’m upset.
I won’t talk of despair or regret.
BEFORE I SCREAM
I won’t tell you of my hopes, my fears,
I won’t talk about my dreams.
BEFORE I SCREAM
I will not alter my thinking or change my daily routine.
BEFORE I SCREAM
I won’t speak of the anger building inside,
Or wipe off the polite smile behind which I hide.
BEFORE I SCREAM
I refuse to clear my conscience and forgive myself my wrongs,
I will not smell the flowers or listen to my favorite song.
BEFORE I SCREAM
I will not ask for help and come to you on bended knee.
I won’t look in the mirror and take a look to really see.
BEFORE I SCREAM
I won’t talk of compassion or camaraderie,
Of mutual distrust or blatant misery.
BEFORE I SCREAM
But if one more person asks me how I am doing,
I WILL SCREAM

Okay Ladies, now all together, 1.2.3. SCREAAAAAAAAAM
