One Day at a Time

As I take my life one day at a time
I try not to embrace the negative thoughts
That come to my mind
The thoughts at times rush in like a flood
Then, it depresses me and tries to remove my love
I can't understand why people
Gloat in the negative of my past
But when I do good, they put it in a stash
They trash it, as if it never happened
The positive has been buried by my family
And so-called friends
But they resurrected the negative
In order to make it once again live
What must I do in order to be happy this day?
I say, I must remember the day God
Put my past to rest and said:
"Lakisha, I love you anyway!"
