Sudden Dismay

Today I was optimistic,
nothing could get in my way.
today I was productive,
organizing my cares away.
Amazed at the blessing, 
of an unblemished day...
until one little mishap,
threw me off,
filled me with dismay.
Excited to bring in the evening with peace,
instead I brought it in with a crying session,
an emotional and painful release.
Why do our bodies react this way?
Why must we bring ourselves down,
and let our days go astray?
Perhaps we're overloaded,
ready to collapse,
or explode and didn't know it.
So I will take this sudden dismay,
to learn to listen to my heart,
listen to my body,
and make this day,
go my way.
