To Live Another Day

To survive a day I try emptying my mind

Think of nothing, but inevitably 

The troubling thoughts sneak right in

I push them and keep pushing them back

Willing myself to forget

Chanting to myself

I am happy —- I am happy

Trying to save my sanity

Trying to survive

Willing myself to live another day


How do you celebrate the survival of a day?
