I'm Sad

Updated on January 12, 2019

I'm sad, it's stupid but I'm sad anyway
inside I'm happy I am
not sure exactly why I feel this way
can't put my finger on it
can't step right on it
can't wrap my mind around it
not sure exactly how I found it

But I'm sad and it's stupid but I'm sad anyway
got everything - should be grateful
it's just some things don't go my way
but that's really every day
can't put my finger on it
can't step right on it
can't wrap my mind around it
not exactly sure how I found it

Guess I'll go out and walk the dogs
and see if with the walk it goes away
maybe I'll see something inspiring
maybe I'll just accept this is a day
a day where maybe smiles
come over me after feet put in the miles
so I can let this stupid sadness
just lift up and drift away

I'm sad, it's stupid but I'm sad anyway
inside I'm happy I am
not sure exactly why I feel this way
can't put my finger on it
can't step right on it
can't wrap my mind around it
not sure exactly how I found it

Time to make it go away.

        I feel like I need to modify my take on my own poem. Because as I say in the poem... I'm happy and i am. My situation is a bit sad and I'm doing what I can to change that. Maybe I need to do more, maybe I'm not really doing all I can. But one thing I'm for sure doing is keeping the perspective of how lucky I am. Lucky to have my family, lucky to have my health - lucky to have this life and this opportunity. Sort of regret my title of "I'm Sad" but I think the poem dispels this feeling - saying it is stupid to be sad. Which I don't fully believe - sometimes you just have a situation that is sad and you have to experience that for a bit but then you need to do an accounting of the good things you have and not just the obstacles you face. It's the circumstances that are sad more than me being sad. I try to choose to be happy because too much stress and sadness and feeling wronged is just a waste of valuable time. Don't look for sadness or reasons to be offended. Look for ways out of your mess and appreciate you have the opportunity to do that. Need to keep that glass half full attitude. It's the only way to go. Be sad sometimes but let it run its course and then let it go completely and be happy again. To be happy and to do what you can to spread that happiness is the fundamental purpose in life.
