I’d love to take a snapshot
of the newness of the day –
that moment I first open my eyes
before thinking gets in the way
Morning holds such promise!
The dawn is on fire with hope,
like a rocket ship poised to blast off
to challenge the vast unknown
But alas, my brain insists on booting up
The chaos and trouble soon begin
Shadows are cast and plans are dashed
as countless memories rush back in
Where is the button to pause my life,
to stop the endless replays?
If I couldn’t remember my yesterday,
would it change how I feel about today?
