Sometimes


Sometimes I feel my life’s just a big nightmare
Sometimes I wish I could stand up to my greatest fear
Sometimes I wish it all were new
Sometimes I wish it were happening to you
Sometimes I wish people could only see
Another side of me
Sometimes I wish I were never born
So I wouldn’t be here for you to scorn
Sometimes I wonder why I’m only a friend
Sometimes I wonder will anyone care if my life came to an end
Sometimes I wish you were in my shoes,
So you could see life from my point of view
Sometimes I wonder if I'm just too late
Sometimes I wonder if there’s such a thing as “Fate”
Sometimes I wonder why there’s night and day
Sometimes I wonder why my life’s this way
Sometimes I wish I could jump the track
Sometimes I wish I could just go back
Sometimes I wish I had a risk worth the take
Sometimes I wish I could erase every mistake
Sometimes I pretend everything is fine
Sometimes I wish I was on the frontline
Sometimes I wish life would turn out right
Sometimes I wish I could win the fight
But nothing is right and nothing is fine
So I stand-alone and wait for the end of time,
If you wish to join me go ahead
Cause in the end we’ll all be dead.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
