Pizza For Breakfast

Doing things differently

Every once in a while

Is good for the mind,

Good for the soul.

Just tell me why

I shouldn’t eat pizza

For breakfast today

If it’s in my fridge.

I don’t always have

To eat a plain bagel.

And why shouldn’t I

Wear neon pink lipstick

On a dreary Monday?

Is there anything

that says maybe  I shouldn’t

rearrange my room

To keep things exciting?

Little changes keep me alive.

They keep me motivated

To get up every day

And expect today to be

Different from yesterday.

I need to know that

The future is brighter

Even if that means

Consuming cold pizza for breakfast.

For breakfast today.

Dawning Day

These days, I seem to be falling apart.

My leg, my arm, and now my heart.

Just when everything seems to fall in place,

It explodes right up in your face.

You think that you have it all,

But you’ve really been set up to fall.

It feels like the world has come to an end,

But I realize my wounds will mend.

I’ll stand up and be on my way,

Going forward into the dawning day.
