The darkness is always closing in
taking away the hours that I need
to completely succeed
at what I'm doing.
I just need more minutes in a day
more time in any single way
just to say what I have to say
and do what I do.
But this rushing continues
and I see it in the tired bodies of those around me
and in the eyes of those who have had enough.
We're all just waiting for that one moment we can
take a break
and close our eyes.
Not worry for an hour
about what comes ahead.
And while this day may not be tomorrow,
we hope that it can be the next.
