one of those days....

Powerless in an
empowered world,
I have only myself
to turn to – or blame.

My decision…rise or fall.
My decision…meek or strong.
My decision…write or wrong.

Attitude adjustments
for every occasion.

Some days, I am a mouse –
struggling to creep unseen
and uneaten through a
rocking-chair room
of long-tailed cats.

Some days, I look at the world
with teeth bared
and claws sharp
fighting to defend
my right to be defensive.

Today I can hold it together…
