Not Tonight

I’ve been so strong for far too long,
Now everything is going wrong.
One thing after another, it all adds up,
Can’t have one more thing fill my cup.

I’ve been bending and now I’m breaking,
Taking off the smile I’ve been faking.
This is the needle that’ll break my back,
Tonight’s gonna be when it’ll all attack.

Maybe tomorrow, but not tonight
I’m not gonna be strong, I’m not gonna fight
I’ll let my body shake, let the tears flow,
When I’ll solve my problems, I don’t know.

I don’t know how much more I can take,
I don’t know how much more this heart can brake.
I didn’t know I was going to react this way,
I didn’t know I’d run out of things to say.

For tonight, I will cry just a little longer,
Until I make my heart a little stronger.
For tonight, I will hold my knees to my chest,
Until I fall asleep and lay down to rest.

Tomorrow, I will stand tall and face the day,
I will put a smile on my face like everything’s okay.
Tomorrow, I will mask all that I feel inside,
I will put my shoulders back and walk with pride.

Soon everything will be all right,
Maybe tomorrow, but not tonight.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
