ALWAYS TOMORROW

SOME OF US WOULD LOVE TO CREATE UTOPIA,
BUT REALITY GETS IN THE WAY.
IT WINDS ITS’ STIFLING TENDRILS
AROUND OUR DREAMS AND HOPES
AND KILLS THE WILL TO STRIVE
TOWARD A BETTER PLACE!
WE CARRY ON; HOLLOW SOULS
FILLING THE VOID WITH ALCOHOL,
BULLSHIT AND DRUGS;
TASTING NIRVANA IN FLEETING MOMENTS
THAT QUICKLY MELT AWAY.
THE REST OF THE TIME WE WRESTLE
WITH THOSE SCREAMING DEMONS
OF SELF DOUBT AND DO WHATEVER
GETS US THROUGH THE PAIN.
THERE’S ALWAYS TOMORROW!
WE CAN PICK OURSELVES UP
AND START ALL OVER AGAIN!
WE KNOW WE’LL FUCK UP,
BUT IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THE HELL,
A SLICE OF HEAVEN KEEPS US GOING.
RETREAT IS NOT AN OPTION,
AND EVEN IF WE’RE ONLY MARKING TIME,
WE CAN STILL DREAM OF UTOPIA.
THERE’S ALWAYS HOPE!
THERE’S ALWAYS TOMORROW!

    A forward walk. We fall, we get up again, we do what we can in our own way. Not forgetting to stop and smell the roses….so many joys in the small things. Thanks Ray. xx

    It’s the fun (and sorrow) of life! It’s what gets us up every morning – that little slice of heaven.

    sad but true. god lies within those moments, no matter how fleeting, and if we see them…it’s all worth it. this 3rd dementional life is about pain and work…and seeing through the cracks to heaven.
    awesome, brother! xo
