Bad Day...

I'm having a bad day

But you'll never get to know it

My heart's too broken

And my head's too proud

To show it

I'm having a bad day

But I'll smile

And crack the funnies

I'd rather hide the pain inside

Than verbalise my worries

I'm having a bad day

If you ask

I'll say "I'm fine"

So don't persist in asking

You're just wasting

Precious time

I'm having a bad day

So my mask is brightly painted

Don't stare at me

Through curious eyes

With glances that will taint it

I'm having a bad day

Too scared to talk

Of how I feel

'Cos if I share my hurt out loud

That will make it real

  1. This is a mantra for many. We hide behind our fun so easily. Like an invisibility cloak we perform in front of while we hid behind. Xx great job my friend.

    1. Thank you, Ellen...and yes, so many of us do this...I 'spose it's the only way we know how to cope... xx

  2. Yes, we all get bad days. Trouble starts when these days morph into a week...
