Another Day


I'm nothing here, and I'm nothing there
I'll be something somewhere, when I'm out of here

Far away, on another day
I'll make my way, to the other stay

To another place, to another stay
To another time, another day

I take my time, to end this way
To end this day, another day

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was inclined to write this one day while I was at church on a Wednesday. I was kind of feeling a little lowly that day and so these words just came to me, though it wasn't the best of ways to have stumbled upon this 'thought', it seemed to work in my favor after its completion.
It's the thought of the progression in life, while yet knowing the reality of the experiences amidst you. Though seeing a destined future, the truth of that day harbors you to a stand-still; causing you to not move towards that sure end, though hoping still for progress.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
