Before Seven in The Morning

There are a few minutes before seven am.
13 minutes to be exact.
In these few minutes, I let my mind spin with thoughts.

I think about how the day will unravel 
and I hope that it'll be good.

The fact is I haven't felt like myself. 
The person who is always excited about everything and kind to everyone isn't here
and that's okay.
For now, I am the shy person who doesn't like to be bothered
and the person who spends to much time thinking about what is going to happen.

It's been hard to think
and living in the moment seems forced when there are many eyes watching.
This is normal right? 
To feel so alone and lost sometimes.
Like a single daisy in a field of buttercups.

I keep telling myself that I will be okay
and things will pass and that until they do this is okay.
even if it feels a little wobbly
It's okay

Now there are four minutes before seven.
Four minutes before I get this day started.
I want to leave on a positive note.

Today will be great
think positive thoughts and try to enjoy the little moments of today
Love yourself for who you are no matter how "off" you may feel
you are still YOU and that is what counts.

  9. "To feel so alone and lost sometimes.

    -Reminds me of this quote: "Didst thou give me this inescapable loneliness so that it would be easier for me to give Thee all?" - Dag Hammarskjold

  14. This was so perfect, I loved this poem so much!!!!!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog "This post is very mature of you to write... The third paragraph where you explain how wonderful it is to learn and how your mind goes blank when you think of nothing but numbers really put me in the mood to do some math. Which is rare for myself. Teens have it hard, they are mostly always under looked and I wish we could change that. You are one step in the right direction. Thank you for the motivation." It makes me really happy that I made you feel motivated; you have no idea, that is the thing that makes me happiest!!!

    I know how you feel, in this poem i mean. I can especially relate to the piece at the end about implementing positive thoughts right from the start of your day.

    Keep writing!
