There are days...


There are days when frustration is at the forefront of my being
When everything up my sleeve has been tried once, twice, three times
Days when I can’t imagine one second more or I might just explode

There are days when joy is brimming over the edge of my cup
When everything has been brilliant, fulfilling, successful
Days when I can’t imagine feeling more victorious

There are days when nothing fits in the box
When everything stacks up, higher and higher, trembling, tilting
Days when I can’t breathe for fear of dropping all the spinning plates

There are days when giggles fill the air and feed my soul
When everything shines a little brighter, warmer, happier
Days when I can’t believe it could get any better

There are days
When everything makes me wonder, worry, value
Days when I can’t decide what to decide

There are days.
What kind of day is today?


  1. I hope you are having one of the best kind of days, not a worry day. The good thing is there's always tomorrow and it might be a super day.

  2. I'm glad that there are such a wide variety of days to choose from - makes life so much more fun!

  3. My favorite line - "...when nothing fits in the box
    When everything stacks up, higher and higher, trembling, tilting." Love the imagery of this!

  4. I appreciated the flip-flopping of this Slice - so similar to my mind. Some days are better than others, that's for sure. Today was one of those days where my spinning plates almost came crashing down. I'm ready for it to be over. :)
