“Some Days”


“Some Days”

Yes, I am thankful
Yes, it’s really great
I have made it so far
so far I have been spared
but some days I get flaky
and sad and angry too.
some days I get so flaky
I want my life renewed.

Some days I want hair
thats long and straight
sometimes pretty nails
a carefree attitude
both breasts too,
Some days I get needy
Some days I have wants
Some days I want protection
from fears to be gone
Some days I just get flaky
and sad and angry too

My freedom has left
My mind occupied
My dreams conditional
My life uncertain
But
But I have to pull this burden
a life marked away
a life marked as traitor
day by day
moment by moment
bit by bit

Suppress the fear
Hold on to hope
Distract yourself
It works, sometimes
It works some days
but some days I get flaky
and sad and angry too.
