My three honest friends are nature, music, and books 

I found out that these three things are my best friend during my worst, and my best day.

When life goes wrong

When one day is so long

Seem so hard to take any breath in

To open my eyes to each new day

I found myself driving around the road

I might stop at where I want

Those places may have had

Blue sky, water, tree, flowers, birds fly on top of my head

I found myself sit on the chair

Under big tree, where my face can feel all the wind

When I hold a book in front of my eyes

And just put those words inside my soul

When I put some music into my brain

When my mind contain millions thing I want to say

When my heart does not know what to do or react beside silent

When my body completely shut down on me

If I’m tired of sitting

I stand up and keep walking about 6 round around the lake

But it turns out that was the best

Calm, silent, peace

I ever have done for my own sake

Those problems find its way to disappear for a while

When I feel better

I drive my car back the house

Where my heart belongs

I still give a smile for myself

To keep moving and be happy again

That was and always

Be my best therapy in life

During the rough day

For a woman like me
