Juxtaposition

Sunset
golden purple
stained with crimson stars
splashed with midnight paint
angels and demons
dancing together
war and peace.
Many breathe
corruption and perfidy
justifying their negligence
while bowing down
and praying for forgiveness.
Many breathe
honor and harmony
obscured by chaos
while standing tall
and refusing all cruelty.
Not all angels wear halos
Not all demons wear horns
Not all praise our Lord
Not all disavow the Devil
sometimes we confuse the two
because of words spoken.

A Good Day

It strikes me as so odd;

I can tell varying degrees of how my mood has changed.

Sunday, Monday and Tuesday I was oh so sad.

Medication bumped up by an extra 150 mg.

Wednesday I was able to discern that I was happier. Had a small blip on the happiness radar but I recovered.

Today is Thursday, and although I still want to hide away, selfishly taking an entire day as a me day (I am off) I am able to tell yet again, that my happiness level has risen and my sadness level has lowered.

It is going to be a good day.
