Some Days Are Harder Than Others

A little blue
Slapped in the face,
Embarrassed to think
I was on a cloud
I was self-proud
For awhile

In a flash
Ever so quickly
I crashed and
Came tumbling down
Back to earth
Ouch! That hurt

Stand up again
Pick up the
Pieces what’re left
If any of
My own self-respect

This dream of mine
Will come true
I won’t give up
I refuse to
I’ll go on
I always do
Has this ever
Happened to you?

Sometimes it takes a friend or a new found acquaintance to point out flaws that we ourselves cannot see. This happened to me today, and I am grateful to this person in many ways. So even though this piece sounds terribly depressing, it isn't so. For me it is just a learning process.
