STRIVING TO REMAIN SANE


I opened my eyes this morning
And a strange thing happened to me.
I felt warm
I felt content
I felt as though the world was hugging me.
No bitter taste in my mouth
No dread at the day ahead of me
Only happiness at what was, is, and shall be.
You see, my paranoia and I have concurred
That whilst he believes I have done too little
And I believe I have done more than enough
I have, in fact, done just the right amount
And this, in essence, provides a smile
Every day, of every week, from this day forth.
And whilst the ticking sound in my head rasps
And my rationality debates
I ultimately can only want for one thing
That from this day til my last
I shall live my life to the last drop
And never miss a single opportunity until
My heart
Stops.
