Let Me Rest Today

Let me rest today; just today

It’s irresponsible; it’s not like me

I know. I do know that.

But let me rest today; just today.

The blue sky which embraced me

Is a black quilt smothering me.

So let me rest today; just today.

It’s burdensome; it’s hard on others.

I know; I do know that.

But let me rest today; just today.

The ground beneath me is no more

The strength in my legs has evaporated.

Let me rest today; just today.

It’s useless. It’s won’t to change anything

I know; I do know that.

But let me rest today; just today.

Leaning against the wall of scorns

My tenuous shoulders crack.

Let me rest today; just today

It’s cowardly; it’s not ideal

I know; I do know that

But let me rest today; just today.

I’ll deal with the exhausting world later

I’ll deal with my lacking self later

Let me rest today; just today.

I’ll deal with my problems later.
