Shell Shock

The war is far from over. Each day
awakens another demon. To say
that life is a breeze must be a lie.
It is hard to stay positive when
you know, you too, will someday
die. All we can do is try to stay
sane. There is a war inside all
of our brains. There is some sun,
but mostly rain. Life can be fun
if we decide to run before father
time tucks us in. What we lose
in things is gained in wisdom.
When the dust settles, we will
see that past souls have risen.
The war is far from over, yet
the score is far from set. Bet
on yourself and don’t give up.
When feeling shell shocked, be
the rock that does not stop
staying on top. Win the battle
today. Strap on your saddle.
Ride closer to the finish line.
When the war is finally over,
our mission will be complete.
That’s when we will be okay.
That’s when we will feel peace.

Another Day

What’s another day? It depends
on who you ask. It’s all relative.
Go ahead; ask a relative. Sure,
it’s just 24 hours: 1,440 minutes.
Some may say, it’s another day.
Others say to not think ahead.
Today is a day and tomorrow
is another. That is where it gets
tricky. Who knows if we will
see another day? I guess we
will have to see another day
for any of us to confidently say.
