A Long Day

Worse than a long day,

it can become a long life,

a pathetic, miserable life.


On days like this,

it's easy to retreat

into your personal hell.


I give my thoughts full-reign

until they consume me and I spend 

all day wiping away tears.


I surrender on this day

and close my eyes hoping 

tomorrow won't be a repeat.
