It Was a Hard Day

I’m tired
My eyelids hurt
The skin below my left ear itches
I’m taking in the day
As imperfect as it was
I made it, it’s done
Soon I will fall asleep
And hopefully see
Dreams of great importance to me
Feel, see into the vast experience
Of life and it’s offerings
Steadily taking my next step
I’m thankful for the small things
The fact that my ear itches
I know I’m alive, though today I just might have survived
