A Beast By Any Other Name....

Poem By Dee Daffodil

I think I'd like to go to bed
And stay there for the day
Wallow in self pity
Have courtship with dismay

I think I'd like to drink it in...
The sorrow and the 'pain'
For every ounce of feeling this
I surely must make 'gain'

I shed a tear...from time to time
And that I can't deny
Just do me one small kindness...
Don't ever ask me why

I won't give in completely
I've never been that sort
When sadness threatens inner will
I build a stronger fort

So, please leave me now to grovel
As the blackness takes it's toll
It may nibble at the shell...
But it'll never take my soul!
