"The Appeal of the Future"

Tue, 10/18/2016 - 12:11 -- mdonald

Why must I get up
To face the day
And add to the troubles
Trying to fade away

In this life I have built,
What is there for me
I've nothing to cherish
But pain and agony

But somehow, I keep going
Fighting the good fight
Living my life
From morning to night

I'm searching for something
For what, I don't know
Probably something incredible
The world has to show

There has to be more
Than the feelings I feel
Aspects of life that
Fill me with zeal

I'm in the sun's light
Bright shine on my skin
Everything will work out
For me in the end

This poem is about: 



I have struggled with overwhelming sadness in the past. The thing that never fails to cheer me up is thinking of all the things I can do, be, and see in the future. The mysteries that await me further in my life truly keeps me feeling good.
