I know it has been a while since I posted. I’ve actually been going through a good patch. I’ve taken a downturn lately. Reheating some chilli on the stove this morning I was trying to find the positive things I have been doing to counteract the demands others are requesting. This piece is a conseqence of those musings.

Doing the best,
Doing the best,
Doing the best I can,
Doing the best,
Doing the best,
I’m doing the best I can.

Walking through the frost,
Hanging the wash out,
Enjoy the sun and blossom,
Heating the leftovers through,
Getting rid of the bugs,
Preparing to freeze it for later.

Acknowledging the knee pain,
Through enthusiastic running,
Feeling guilty about not attending the Games,
Meeting my weirdo friends,
Listening to their achievements,
Supporting the amazing things they’ve done.

I don’t want the headache,
I don’t want the blues,
I don’t want this constant tiredness,
Don’t want to ring the bank,
Or get my id checked,
Or tidy up those boxes.

Website development is calling,
Back to finding landing page photos,
And working out three benefits,
Focus on what needs to be done,
Not flights of fancy to make it better,
No point if you’re the only one that sees it.

Doing the best,
Doing the best,
Doing the best I can,
Doing the best,
Doing the best,
I’m doing the best I can.

It may not be good enough for you,
I’m not sure it’s good enough for me,
But I’m doing the best I can.
