It was hard for a while

for a long, long while

then it was easy.

But it wasn’t that easy

to get to Easy.

It took years

long, insufferable years,

exhaustion, but persevering

and then it was easy.

The smile wasn’t



And there’s still bad days

there will always be bad days

but they don’t seem so bad

when I know

the good days will be back.

    Even the worst day lasts only 24 hours. The sun always rises again. Good write.
