Fighting by Blair Gaulton

Fighting
Coming apart
at the seams.
Fighting doubt ‘n’ sadness;
sequestered inside of me.

Listening to the breeze.
I want to dance away;
that will solve nothing.
The fight goes on;
not about right or wrong.

I will dance;
not go away.
Try to free myself
‘n’ clear my head.
At the moment;
feeling more dead than alive.

Must not give up;
when the day
is tough ‘n’ rough.

Must vanquish it;
never surrender.
Going through;
an emotional blender.

Tattered ‘n’ torn;
feeling lost ‘n’ forlorn.
as the battle rages on;
Scorn ‘n’ anger rise;
much to my surprise.

Time to change the tide;
Enough!
Give it my all;
face down;
this internal squall.
It will fall.
In the end;
I maybe bruised
but will stand tall.

Right Now by Blair Gaulton

Right Now
My energy today is nonexistent
I feel inconsistent;
weak, tired, and sad.
The weather is beautiful.
With time; I will arise,
and accept these feelings.
Throw the negativity away;
get rid of it;
and go on with my busy day.

Against Inner Negativity by Blair Gaulton

Against Inner Negativity
We all have too much negativity
in ourselves.
It cuts us to shreds;
when we consider another path or route.
It is not good.
Staying the same;
does not help us to grow;
or gain experience we need.
We have to learn;
to trust ourselves.
Ignore our inner critic,
and the negativity.
Work hard, strive to acheive;
believe we will succeed.
Never give up;
that day will come!
