As the days go by,

I realize I am living a lie.

Each Morning I hesitate to open my eyes,

unable to sort the truth from lies.

I want to feel the warmth of the morning light,

but, I curl up in my blanket

to stay warm instead.

I am not ready to face the world; I think.

I can rise above all; I feel

Let me dream, just a little more, please...

Dreaming alone won’t keep you at ease.

Wake up darling, it’s a bright new day.

I can be someone new today.
