Every Day

What if I wake up tomorrow
and I still feel the need to cry?
What if this dread inside me
never goes away?
I don’t know if I can live
the rest of my days
always wanting a better life.
One where I didn’t feel so guilty
for every tear I shed
for every thought I have
and for every day I forget to live.
So that when I reach the end
and I hit the wall
while I stay there wondering
where my life disappeared to
I don’t feel ashamed
of the days I wasted
of the smiles I didn’t return
and the laughter I didn’t enjoy.
This black cloud swirls inside me
and sends such dark feelings
that those better days
I once dreamt of
are destroyed in the instant
I let my guard down.
The point I’m trying to make
is that no matter what I do
despite the laughter
despite the good days
the joy-filled occasions
and the love of my friends
in this world I’ve created around me
I’ll never win.
The truth is
I don’t know what I’m doing
but I do it every day.

Every Day
