Greet the Day When the day is roughand the night is near,and its cooling caressClears away my weariness and Soothes my blistered body with Its kindness. When the Nightmares come out to playTo fool my mindTo trick my heartTo take my fears and amplifytheir effectivenessLaughing as I writhe in pain. When my worries pile upand threaten to drown mein a sea of self-hatred and my very being overwhelmedwith the memories of past mistakesand Dreams gone sour. When it's me against the Worldand I can feelmy grip slippingI wonderIf there is evena point intrying. But then,I remember The brightness of a sunriseThe beauty of a smileThe happinessthat surrounds meevery day. I rememberThat the world is worth getting up for.
