Negative Day
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Everybody has negative days.
I'm having one of those days.

I have no job, no money, no speech so to speak.

Yes today is a bad day.
Going to have to make it a good day.

So I'll talk to myself to make me sway.
I have so much that has gone my way.

Time to smarten up and stop feeling this way.

Self pity is boring to me anyways.

Barb, we have ALL felt that way., Gosh Darn it!


I run my own business and I'll tell you, its been tough since 911. Sometimes it's just month to month, then something pops, oh, I'm saved for another month. Also, its interesting that I found this poem today, it was posted on 03-11-03 I think and on 03-13-03, Dreamer posted a pooem of mine called "Have A Great Day

Suppose we were thiniking of each other? Oh, the mysteries of life.

I understand you poem.

We all have these feelings on bad days Barb. You need the bad days to realise how good the good ones are
