May Have Looked Down, But Not Out

May looked down, but I'm not OUT! ! ! !  

I became distracted,
In away that I didn't know my going, or coming. It was like I just couldn't rest in my soul because mentally peace didn't exist or love me anymore
So I thought.

Trying to rest seemed obsolete because, physically my body was tired of everything. focusing became a challenge like I had suffered from A.D.H.D and wasn't  
completing nothing! ! ! ! ! at......all.Solving the problem was  history but something on thee inside wouldn't allow me to lay down and die. It  almost felt like my assignment wasn't complete the  kicking in my sprit became  the jump start, towards my heart. I may have looked down but not OUT! ! ! ! ! !

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
