I am mad today and I know not why
My brain is dead, not thinking
Movement is more like robotic
No blinking or winking.
I have not felt like this before
I can usually fight it
But today, I move from habit
Walking from pit to pit.
This can not be the norm
There has to be a reason
Too hot, no sleep
Or maybe it’s just the season.
I have spoken few words today
Which is so not like me
No family or friends have come
My friend ended up being the TV.
I hear the bad news coming over the box
There is nothing good to hear
It helps to keep me down and out
And to keep pouring out a tear.
I hope that this sound is temporary
For I don’t like how I feel
I want change to come for me
I have asked God for a better deal.
