There’s Nothing I Can’t Today

It’s true my days are dreary nightsAnd the ways are full of thorns,I have to go through silent fightsIn each silvery morn. I have to deal unnoticed tearsAnd sheer hatred and taunts,And weird feelings of baffling SphereDon’t go the way I want. And vague mirages of eerie pastLike wraiths so foul and vile,Ruin my flowers…

Dreams
