2019 was quite the year,
Suffered many hammer blows,
And while I though I hid it well,
My kitten always knows…
Cold, dark and wet today,
I’m getting too old for this crap.
Thankfully rainy days and kittens
Will always make me nap!
You won’t hear it in my voice,
Or see it in my expression.
Because I’ve learned to hide it when
I’ve been bitch-slapped by depression.
Such a delightful sunny day,
Perfect for frolicking in the park.
But I’m at work being self-destructive,
For my mind and soul are dark.
By no means was this my best week,
Though I fought with all my might.
Now I’m in my recliner, in the dark
Grooving to Julie London all night.
