Even When

When I am having a hard day

I try to do one really good thing

For someone else, for something else.

Even when my heart is breaking

I can look at that something,

That someone, and say

It wasn’t all about me today

It was about something

Bigger than myself

So even though

My pain is unbearable

I can go on, I can go on

Until another day is done

Until the day is done.
