A bad day


On a bad day the world seems...
Smaller
Duller
Meaningless
Cruel
Judgemental
Hatefu l
When that day is over I see its...
Bigger
Better
Colourful
Meanin gful
Compassionate
Loving
Stay away bad days
and bring on great days.

    So very true. I liked it. In reality we can't avoid bad days, we must pray for lesser bad days or strength to withstand it. (Report) Reply

    Hello fellow Poet, Nobody loves a bad day, unfortunately all days
    cannot be good otherwise we would have a perfect life.
    Life is not perfect we have to accept the bad as well as the good.
    A lovely poem and very sensible. Thanks for the invite. (Report) Reply

    a bad day starts with a bad event.then we see the bad events happen repeatedly.but a good day is completely vice versa.just its about being negative or positive.
