Half Dead

I only living for half of the day
And the rest I'm as good as dead
I could only breathe for half of the day
And the rest I lack of the air
But I must struggle to make up
I must keep walking in this world 
Even though I don't know why I should hang on
Pretend that all is shiny and fine

I only honest for half the day
And the rest I hide in the dark
I could only smile for half of the day
And the rest I plaster it with grit
I know I should be grateful
That at least I don't have to wear a mask along the day 
Keep concealing my true being
When some people even could not distinguish their selves anymore

I only at ease for half of the day
And the rest I'm bound in the cage
I could only be free for half of the day
And the rest I am a puppet
But every time I couldn't get enough
I don't want to awake in the morning
I don't want to immediately think about daily chores
And not just fly away and escape

I only sing for half of the day
And the rest I swept by the sound
I could only feel safe for half of the day
And the rest I count my blessing
I become indifferent to prevent of getting hurt
But I realize I could not run forever
And afraid to face days ahead 
Because I don't want to lose my hope for tomorrow too

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
