little things. #poetry

it’s nothing major
no need to worry
it’ll be okay
it’s just a little thing

it shouldn’t feel like
the end of the world
but it does… although
it’s just a little thing

something I can’t fix
has untold power
to ruin my day
it’s just a little thing

will I ever learn
to have perspective?
because after all
it’s just a little thing

my heart is broken
no need to worry
it’ll be okay
it’s just a little thing

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  6. Little things CAN be fixed one at a time. Eat away at them and then cast them aside and move on to the next one. You are not going to make me feel the same way as you do at the moment. I refuse to go there, and so should you. You can turn this around Sandra, and you have to have your husband and kids help you, but YOU have to start the process. Don’t give up on yourself. There are loads of us out here who care very much for you and want to see the positive lady back again.
    Hugs, and more hugs. They are very good for the little things!

    • I don’t mean for this to sound harsh and it’s certainly not personal… but I am so sick of the “yes you can” crap. Normal people without the same issues that I have… maybe they can. But there are things beyond my control. Some that would be beyond anyone’s control. And I am not capable of the same things other people are capable of. That is a fact. You may not believe it… no one may believe it… but I, and at least two professionals, believe it. I am just not there. I wish someone telling me I “can” would change everything but it won’t. Obviously, if it were that simple, I’d be fine.

      That being said, I do hate that little things bother me as much as they do. I cannot fix them… things with my kids, things with people I cannot control? I cannot fix them. But it would be nice if they didn’t upset me as much as they do.

      • I’m happy for your daughter that she was able to do what she has done. I don’t think people have no idea what I’m going through… and I know that their words and thoughts are genuine.

        I am not assuming anything.

        I am just frustrated as hell with people telling me that I “can” do things that I cannot do… RIGHT NOW. Maybe someday I will be able to. But right now, I cannot, so it is the equivalent of someone telling me to fly a plane. I can’t RIGHT NOW. If I ever learn how, then maybe I can. But right now, I cannot. That seems to be what some people don’t understand.

        I appreciate your thoughts. I really do. But in the future, if you want to express thoughts of this nature, I prefer it be privately. I will leave this comment up for a little while in hopes that you’ll see it but then I’m removing it. Thanks.

  7. I stopped by to see if you were feeling better, but I’ve just read the comments and I know you’re not. I have no words of wisdom, but I do know how you feel, and I don’t say that lightly. Some people breeze through life, then there are the ones like us!
    They may only be little things but each one wears you down more and more.

  8. The littlest things can be the most painful. This is a gorgeously heartaching piece.
    I really like this it resonates powerfully to anyone who tries to be strong when the world is falling down around them

    I’ve been trying to be more honest in my own life. Not to give a size and weight to problems… just let them be recognised. Don’t know if it’s doing me any good.

    • Thank you. โ™ฅ I hate that the little things bother me so much. Probably because in my mind, they don’t feel little… they feel huge.

      I probably spend too much time recognizing my problems. I think I need to work on ignoring some of them… ๐Ÿ™‚
