Sometimes

I’ve been writing (and singing) more songs. Still haven’t figured out how to post recordings of them on here but, at least I’m thinking about it. This one is about how life sometimes gets you down, and you wonder if you can cope, but then you think of the hopeful stuff and feel a bit better.

 

Sometimes, when I wake up in the morning,

I think that I should go straight back to sleep.

The world is too big for me, I ache with the pain I see.

I think of the wars, the fear, the hate, the need.

I think of the waste, the mess, the greed.

 

My chest presses in at the thought of getting out of bed.

I don’t want to smile or share what’s in my head.

My legs weigh heavy and I struggle for breath.

 

Then I glance at the window where the sky hangs in silver hues.

Bird song rings in the air so true.

My soul brightens up with life anew.

I think of the love, the compassion, the empathy.

I think of friendship, partnership, humanity.

 

My heart swells so large that I worry it will burst my chest.

I smile at the happy thoughts within my head.

My voice sings out as I jump up from bed.

 

Sometimes, when I wake up in the morning,

I think that I should go straight back to sleep.

The world is too big for me, I ache with the pain I see.

  1. Your song is lovely and I hope you figure out how to share it!

    This theme is on a lot of people’s minds. At least, the bloggers I follow. Maybe if we all keep thinking about the beauty and kindness we can nudge the world back towards that🤔
    I think we’re all exhausted with all the negativity.
