I love the smell of hope in the morning.

This is not the best poem I've written.  In fact, it's rather poorly written.  I'm not sure why, but I thought I'd share it anyways.

Bad Day

I've had a bad day. Yes, I feel down.
I'm ashamed and I'm lonely. I can't make a sound.

Here I am, Jesus. Please open my heart.
If I've not pleased You, then I'm ready to start.

I've had a bad day. I've messed up and failed.
You have shown me Your plans, but I gave up. I bailed.

Your mercy astounds me. You forgive every sin.
And You continue to love me when I fail yet again.

I've had a bad day, but I still feel Your love.
Despite my frustrations, only You are enough.
