Look The Other Way (On a Cold Winter’s Day)

Question:  How much would you have to say if you couldn’t whine or complain?

(Don’t answer that question.)

 

 

 

Then I wonder…

Are you ever going to have a good day?

 

Who is offended if they care?

Controlled stare; unfair declaration on trivial affairs.

 

Then I wonder…

Are you ever going to have a good day?

 

Spare me your fortitude, and ideas of compromised free-thought.

Spare me and get lost, or bare the cost, the brunt of frost.

 

Then I wonder…

Are you ever going to have a good day?

 

Don’t get caught.

Chopped up and Slapped down.

Found laying flat on the cold winter’s ground.

 

Then I wonder…

Are you ever going to have a good day?

 

Frown-town, Downtown, and I laugh about, without preoccupation.

-No real occupation.

Non-sensical elation.

 

Yet I wonder…

 

Sit with patience.

Doctor and his patients, same situation.

 

Another day.

Another day.

 

Yet I wonder…

 

Another day.

 

Prescribing you a remedy, that’s why you came, right?

 

Then I wonder…

Are you ever going to have a good day?

 

Is it night?

 

What do you see, taste, and smell?

So well, all the same, nothing new; mundane and tame.

 

Is it different from my senses?

 

This is your waking Hell.

And I dare to be different, purposefully, even if the criticism is sharp as a tack.

 

Then I wonder…

Are you ever going to have a good day?

 

Then I know…

Its good to be seen, just living the dream.

Still breathing as it seems, still getting by, and in between.

 

Then I know…

I know someone who is worse off then you, and they are having a good day.
