I can’t be happy
I can’t be sad
Every mood
Feels chaotic and bad

I can’t change
I can’t stay the same
This dilemma I have
Is really quite lame

I can’t go away
I can’t stay
I just can’t have anything
My own way

I can’t know
I can’t forget
just quit!

*This drawing is my attempt at illustrating just how awful I felt a week ago when I started back to school. I had registered for too many classes and felt completely overwhelmed. After dropping a couple of my classes, I feel like I’m back on track with my goals. And I’m feeling excited again and eager for the challenge ahead.  ~M 🙂

    1. I couldn’t agree more… I’m a sunshine girl. The winter threatens to kill my spirit every year. I’ve recently moved to a warmer climate where the winters aren’t as long, and I’m already feeling desperate for the warmth of summer days.


  1. Aww I love this piece and the vulnerability!!! Thank you for sharing! The emotions and feelings were palpable, and the drawing is spectacular! Glad you’ve found your groove in school, you got this 🤍🤗
