There are those days When you feel good And your smile is genuine And you can’t hold back the dimples In your cheeks Those days When the sun seems to shine Bright On you When you can absorb its rays And feel its warmth And know that you are shining just as radiant Those days where you want to say hello To strangers And make them friends Those days when colors Appear brilliant And simple sounds dance like music In your ears Days when everything is pleasant When the smells are all sweet And your skin feels so soft And you can’t stop touching things around you Because your sense of touch Reassures you that This day is not a dream You touch To make a connection to reality To make sure That the beauty you are experiencing Is exists in that moment And then there are those days when you wake And there are storm clouds And you feel as ugly as the overcast sky And you keep your hands tucked away Down in your pockets To block the sense of touch Which always made A moment real Hands pocketed You hide from the reality which touch would bring And this disconnect allows you To remain hopeful That maybe this day is just nightmare From which you will soon wake But no There are those real afternoons When all the people you encounter are nasty And cruel When humanity seem to turn its back on you When the dimples in your cheeks bury themselves beneath your flesh Hidden and Afraid to show themselves Scared they might get ripped off By the wind of the violent storm Through which you walk There are those days when you want to cry And scream And curse Those days when all you want is to find yourself an empty hole To lie down, fall asleep and Be alone In To sit still and unconscious For Some time A place to Escape Reality Until A day like tomorrow comes A morning when you can wake up And rise To see the Sunshine As bright as you are When you feel good And your smile is genuine And you can’t hold back the dimples In your cheeks
