Feeling Better



Yes, it was a time when I understood why
people turn to Jesus.

Yes, it was a time where even the weather
seemed in cahoots with the conspiracy
against me.

On days like these, I have the epiphany of
goodness. I try to give my money to the
homeless to make myself feel better. I try
to be a better son.

But still, still this feeling.....UGH...
this feeling.......

Can a good night's sleep rid me of this
feeling? Hows about a warm cup of tea or
some Vitamin C?

Hows about some music. Music that can make
your heart ache because it is so beautiful
and so sad.

So beautiful. So sad.

You asked me the question, so I will answer.

Yes, thank you, I am feeling better.
