I know

I know

The blessings are there-

I wake up

To them each morning.

I know

Things can always be

Worse,

That

The bottom

Is still below me.

I see

Plenty examples

Of how

Bad it could be,

And how good

Things are

When held to that mirror of comparison.

But

It’s amazing

How little

That knowledge can do

To fight off

The feelings

Of despair,

And frustration,

As well as the aching and longing for something better than “this” and “now”.

The toxic

Self-pity and loathing

Consume

The good,

The blessings,

The joy,

When the darkness wins

The fistfight

With the light.

I know

I shouldn’t

Feel

This way,

But I’ll be damned if I don’t still feel like wallowing.
