Tiger Lily Love


A Day Of Despair - Poem by Tiger Lily Love

I took a day off
To lie in my despair
I took a day off from pretending
To dwell on the fact that life
Really isn't fair

I didn't bother hiding the fact
That I was in the midst of misery
I didn't care who saw
So for the first time I cried openly

I didn't want to get out of bed
I just wanted the world to go away
Because there really wasn't anything
Anyone could say to make me feel okay

That day was one much needed
But didn't last long
And when I woke up the next morning
My day of despair had ended
So I got out of bed
And my life continued on


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Inspired by one of those days
Where you just don't feel like putting up with life
Or life's struggles.
- Tiger Lily Love

    I took a day off from pretending
    To dwell on the fact that life
    Really isn't fair
    It's easy to feel like it takes too much energy to be positive about a negative situation or circumstance.

    Because there really wasn't anything
    Anyone could say to make me feel okay
    This is my favorite line though. Very relatable. (Report) Reply
