Better Day – Written Monday 6th May 2002 (Aged 27)

Better Day

i will close my eyes –
before the sight of sweet surprise
i will slide down –
the bone of the sweetest thigh
just to try and resolve what is inside
i will close my eyes –
and then i will turn over in my sleep
for it is easier –
then turning over a new leaf
or to lie in the sun –
and see what lies beneath
i will close my eyes –
because i am tired waiting for a better day
one that i know will come
because hope that is eternally sprung
it will come this way
and i know then, it will be a better day
