Today is a good day!


I woke up this morning with a smile on my face.
I said ‘Today’s gonna be a good day!’
Pulled myself up, thought hmmm, what’s first?
A little prayer, that’s what I have to say.

My mind tried to fight me.
Thoughts kept rushing thru my head.
My body was at odds, just wanting to go back to bed.

I got myself together.
Ate real well to make it last.
I stepped outside and saw a friend.
In that moment we had a blast.

Got in my car, time to head to work.
It’s payday and I’m inspired.
Now I have a boost of energy and my body is no longer tired.

Folks complaining, whatever the reason
Sometimes there doesn’t have to be one.
They came to me, started whining and nagging.
Fight or flight, call it quits, I’m done.

Now I’m writing just so I can clear my mind.
Staying peaceful takes patience and time.
Write a new post for today’s word prompt?
You’re kidding, they want me to rhyme!!!



Daily Word Prompt: Rhyme

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am, but rather that I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for your first approach. From that point you'll understand the power behind such a statement. If you're interested in what I do, that's another story. I embrace life to live my purpose: I mother, I friend; I laugh, I cry, I support; I love, I like, I admire. Mainly I trust and have faith, and thank God for every day I am able to use my life experiences to help people through theirs. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
