Everyday

Everyday I awake With thoughts of life and death Things we hold on to And the ones we let go I sit and reminisce On life and it's moments How fickle it is How difficult we make it Everyday I awake With thoughts of good and bad The decisions we make The persons we become I think of death The finality of it I think of the living And the vanity they overlook Everyday I awake With a lot of aspirations Both real and unreal I think of dreams wasted And those too large to try I wish them all away While hiding behind faded curtains Waiting for the thoughts to disappear Everyday I awake And I tell myself to go on The desire to do much more Overpowering the emptiness Lurking in the shadows I won’t lie that I don’t prefer the solitude Darkness is soothing But only before you experience the light Everyday I awake Only to find a new taste on my tongue The fire burning and pushing I would rather lay on my bed And wallow in emptiness Letting my demons win But I strive Because I always get to the finish line #poetry #writing #life #death
