Up Up

I have feelings in my head and heart
They contradict each other pull me further apart
Trying to work out what they mean
They wont stop conniving they wont convene

Restless, tired, happy, sad
If I didn't know better, Id swear I'm going mad
I'm in bed trying to sort it all out
Fluctuations in my mood making me doubt

Begone you evil fiend of worry
You'd better get out, you'd better hurry
Sleep will take me to a better place
Where I'll boost my feelings and win the race

Start to feel better, start to clear up
Talking to people and reading self help stuff
Taking a perspective of positivity
Seeing the good in everything I see

Taking baby steps forward a day at a time
Spending my life down and depressed is a bit of a crime
So up I come feeling light and happy
Where we'll end up lets wait and see.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
