My Some Days

My Some Days


Some days, the smiles simply donít want to come,
These are the days I try the hardest to fake it.
It isnít because I think Iím infallible,
It isnít because Iím afraid of showing vulnerability.


Some days, the laughter is harder to generate,
These are the days I employ plenty of silliness to mask it.
It isnít because I think I have a duty to always be happy,
It isnít because I think everyoneís happiness hinges on mine.


Some days, the happy thoughts are lost in a mire of sadness,
These are the days I try to shine brighter, to care more, to love harder.
It isnít because Iím trying to hide behind false emotion,
It isnít because Iím in denial of all the hurt and pain and tears.


Some days, I donít feel like being me, offering myself to the world,
These are the days I stop to hold an elderly personís hand.
It isnít because Iím trying to redeem myself.
It isnít because Iím working at fooling the world at large.


Some days, the tears come even when I lock them down tight,
These are the days I find reasons to laugh until I may shed them unabashedly.
It isnít because Iím afraid to let anyone see me cry,
It isnít because I think Iím above shedding tears.


Some days, the hurt and rejection drive me to doubt my worth,
These are the days I reach out and offer love and support to others.
It isnít because Iím trying to prove myself through acts of kindness,
It isnít because Iím out to earn redemption.


Some days, I simply feel more broken than others.
These are the days I take a breath, and then another, and then another.
These are the days I take a step, and then another, and then another.
These are the days I reach out to make life a little brighter for another.


Not because I need to, not because I have to,
Not because Iím expected to, not because I really even want to.
I do it because some days, I need someone to do the same for me.
On my ďsome days,Ē I simply pay it forward and pray for its return.
