It's Okay...

I don't want to think much
I'm not up to par today
I don't want to touch
I need a holiday

Just let me be, I'll be alright
It's all good, you'll see
It's just until tonight
I really need to be free

So let me have a day, I frown
Make it painless, won't you please?
For this world of strife has me down
Has me on my knees

I'll eat and drink, take care of me
Watch the clouds and rest
Make funny animals in the sky
Tomorrow... I'll be my best

Wish I could have been fishing, but did the next best thing, stayed home, rested; ate and drank how I wanted and I really did look at the clouds. It was a pretty good day after all; it turned out that some of the things I have been worried about aren't so bad as I thought. Maybe I'll write about them in the next few days, but right now... I'm still in rest mode. ~ Geez.

I know that you are right, I've shared that little bit of wisdom myself many times. But, as we all know, when things are personal, it doesn't seem to apply to you. I'm feeling a bit better, but there are still things I need to work out. I guess that it is not always as easy to set things right, as just a day off. It will be okay. Thanks again. ~ Geez.
