Just Because I Post It, Doesn’t Mean I Like It

WAKE AND GREET THE MORNING UNAFRAID

Wake and greet the morning unafraid.
Breathe in the light, welcoming the day.
Release the dreamworld; let the nightmares fade.

Call your soul to leave the masquerade;
Another dance will soon be underway.
Wake and greet the morning unafraid.

The darkness lies, its love a cruel charade.
Don’t be seduced; don’t give your heart away.
Release the dreamworld, let the nightmares fade.

You’re free to go—your karmic debts are paid.
No demons intercept the prayers you pray.
Wake and greet the morning unafraid.

Another day, another death delayed.
You’ve promised to yourself that you will stay.
Release the dreamworld, let the nightmares fade.

Light celebrates the choices that you’ve made.
Let night scream on; there’s nothing left to say.
Wake and greet the morning unafraid.
Release the dreamworld; let the nightmares fade.

Ugh. I spent far too long on this to feel this down now that it’s done. It quickly became a battle of wills between the part of me that wanted to post something (anything!) and the part of me that wants to like what I write (and is more than happy to walk away and clean the house instead of sitting here for hours wrestling with words when things aren’t flowing).

Was it worth the effort? I won’t know anytime soon. I might read this in a few weeks and feel fine about it. I might look at it in a few days and feel inspired to rewrite it. I might just forget about it and move on.
