Alphabe-Thursday/Short Story Slam Week 9


We have problems,
Our happy moments are rare;
We either love or hate,
Struggles in life sadden our fate;
T is for today,
Today is an important date,
Today I decide to be myself,
Today I want to make friends with now,
Today I live free,
Today I shipped emotional burdens away,
Today I went to see the sunset in a bay,
Today I fell in love with blue, pink, and gray...
Today my mind popped open,
Today my soul was soften
...
