Poetry: Do it Anyway by Mark Tulin


Some days

It’s hard

To spread my wings

To get off the ground.

Some days

I don’t have it in me,

The willingness to take flight,

The inspiration to soar high.

Some days

I have to convince myself

Of what I have to do,

Where I have to be.

Some days

I have to forget,

Ignore how I feel,

Forget my tired mood.

Some days

I have to push myself

In a stern kind of way.

“Just do it,” I tell myself.

“Do it anyway.”


I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
