Today started slow for me
my thoughts they weigh me down,
I have to change the mood I'm in-
because in an ocean-world I'll drown,
I think of a happy place or thought
and see my face with a smile,
remember someone needs my love
forever- not just a little while,
when you wake up in the morning
don't think of negative thoughts,
think of all the love and joy
the people around you brought.
