The Sun Will Shine Tomorrow
I've survived another manic night of terror, violence, and distant SCREAMS.
Restless nights of worry, only worsened by horrific DREAMS.
Yet, I can find moments of tranquility, no matter how distressing my present state SEEMS.
For I know, that in the morning, I will be greeted by the sun and its mighty BEAMS.
I've done bad things, stole, and lied to people dead in their FACE.
Somehow I was in denial, thinking I could forever elude this PLACE.
I'm here confined in a CELL.
Sentenced to 10 years, the only place worse would have to be HELL.
I survived years of close calls, but my acts finally caught up with ME.
The only positive constant is the beauty of the sun that I live to SEE.
At times, it seems that the sun is really all that I HAVE.
Some moments, I'll gaze at the sky, briefly let my mind roam free, and LAUGH.
As the sun sets, I become saddened by the things I MISS.
Like seeing my son's face and feeling my wife's KISS.
When the lights go out, often all I do is CRY.
I really hate myself, for being here, though I know all the reasons WHY.
Still, I find a way to make it through all of the heartache, regret, and SORROW.
I hold on to the fact, that the sun will shine TOMORROW.
