Stepping away

Trying my hardest to get out of the zone.
Actually I'm not, I'm sat here alone.
Not having a clue what i should do.
Just knowing, i have another day to get through.

I've got to give myself, a big kick up the bum.
Sitting here empty, doesn't get anything done.
Wallowing away, in a victim state.
Is something that i really hate.

There is so many more, worse off than me.
In fact, I'm really very lucky.
Life's made difficult by the things i can't have.
Selfish things, that I'm trying to grab.
All brought on by self pity.
It's not who i want to be, it doesn't feel pretty.

So i choose this day, to make a change.
Step away from a life that's deranged.
Embrace what i have and be happy with it all.
good or bad, i will do my best to stand tall.

Great poem! I agree with 'sinnocence' the ease of your rhyme and flow make your work seem like a thoughtstream (which I guess it is). Really beautiful Smiley You'll be fine
