Today I Am Human
today I am human
I know this too well...
dark emotions within me
no longer they dwell
for sadness and loneliness
this day they have crept..
they've seized my whole being
and left me inept
these days past I've laughed
put thoughts forth quite merry...
yet today laughter is gone
all that's left is contrary
and the hopes, dreams, and wonder
which my heart has fully nourished...
lie in tattered shades of doubt
heart once hopeful...now discouraged
but that is today..this moment..right now
these sad feelings will soon disappear...
tomorrow the sun will shine once again
but today I am human, my dear.
