Musings From A Musical Mind

Bad Day

English: A painting of a teardrop I did.

Some happy

some sad

some productive

and some bad

I continue

holding the line

walking through change

and slow differences

of time and age

sorting through

black and white images

of time gone by

adding everyday strains

to delicate issues

of non-disclosure

Been here before

sketchy feelings

of not feeling safe

it’s crash and burn time

schedules gone mad

feeling overwhelmed

and my mind in a dark place

Will I ever learn

to accept defeat

live and let live

not push so hard

or expect so much

will I ever

be comfortable

not being able to solve

or fix

or finally put to rest

can I regain trust

where trust has been broken

and feel secure

in a world gone mad

little things that

remind me

and spin my mind

out of control

threaten to steal

and rob

my joy

and trust

the world looks wrong

and everyone in it


and dark

slamming me with words

and hitting

my own dark thoughts

tearing me down

drowning me with doubt

tainting me


The hot tears come

streaming down my face

I am helpless to hold them in

and I am thrown

into a helpless state

where nothing turns out right

and everything is hopeless

there is no one to trust

no one who has me

or protects my back

even though

this is not reality

it is called

a bad day


When was the last time you had a really bad day?  How did you respond?




Comments on: "Bad Day" (6)

  1. Last Friday…and Monday. You pretty much captured what I was feeling for a couple of days, and it didn’t feel good. Fortunately, on Tuesday, God got hold of me and set me straight on what was true and what wasn’t about what I was feeling. I’m so thankful that He’ll do that. Hope you are feeling good.

    • Sorry to hear about your bad couple of days – thankfully like you – mine only lasted that day and I was fine. Back in the day I would have blamed it on hormones – not sure what’s happening with that anymore – so can’t use that as an excuse 🙂

  2. Really bad day? Several years ago. I cried and then cried some more.

  3. That’s good! Depends upon what you mean by a bad day. Having had health issues for the last 30yrs, I’m tempted to say frequently. Having had money issues for many years, I’m tempted to say frequently. Having had techie issues for the past nine years, I’m tempted to say frequently. I don’t think a day goes by that there isn’t some major drama in the last several years so I’m tempted to say frequently. However, looking at the alternatives, I might say never. ;D

    • I’m sorry about that – bad days are just supposed to be that – a bad “day” and an unusual thing – not the norm. It’s difficult when they are all bad due to health or financial circumstances.
