Just Today


In a day I did it too
Many of you did not realize it
I was scorned for your response.

I felt skinny
And needed due help
No one stood by me including you.

I thought I was the world’s greatest sinner
But remained comforted by myself
Just an act to remain brave.

I rolled on the ground for thy feeling
I knew I was done and remained useless
But rather comforted myself, an act to remain brave.

You are not alone my friend
You’re neither the first nor going to be the last
For today was your turn please be brave.

They will come back, your friends I mean
Cry no more my dear, for tomorrow will come
For today never last, tomorrow there am hopeful.
