Some people hide, some people don't, I don't and simply won't. Lord help me!

My life is all screwed up.
I know when something is messed up.

No, no, Ad, my friends , and enemies,
I've been pushed over my extremities.
So what the hell am I suppose to do,
give in and turn blue?
Start playing the blame game again,
act like I don't commit sin!

I'll show you how I operate,
I believe in controlling my own fate.
Facing up to the mirror,
not denying that I'm inferior.
I'm just a fellow human being,
with problems and everything.

The way I see it,
you have to face it to fix it.
I've been doing a repair job for some years,
I'm thoroughly familiar with my own problems and fears.
What I can't fix,
I lovingly mix,
It's all apart of the whole,
so I can't break the mold.
In life it is said,
"you have to learn to take the good with the bad."

I accept my negative side,
the worst I do really hide,
keep it away from society,
it's better for my own prosperity.
I don't sweat the small or the large stuff,
cause this life is surely ruff.
I don't live in denial,
forget the jury trial.

Call me what you want,
worrying I surely don't.
After facing my own messed up life,
along with the family of my wife,
nothing but death can kill me,
gossip want bother me,
nothing can touch me.

I live in the positive,
not the negative,
I know the truth,
the whole truth,
I'm a strong survivor,
not a phony jiver.

I was called a survivor once. But I don't think I can take much more of this. One minute strong, then back down again. I hardly have the strength to leave the floor.
I am sorry you have been through it. Never gets easier, does it? Hope at the moment you are not too bad.
Best wishes, Donni-Jay

This is a great write with deep feelings and depth. I feel your pain as I read. Don't worry...We all have faults too numerous to mention.

"I've been doing a repair job for some years"

This I can relate to--I'm still doing mine :)

Just to let you know you are not alone. Have a beautiful Christmas!
