Today Will Remain Ever The Same


It's another day, another dollar
Always the same or so does it seem
It's never changing, always the same
Just one more day in an endless stream

Is it Tuesday today or is it Wednesday?
Sorry to say but I just don't know
Everything's the same each step of the way
Never changing wherever I go

Depression lives and rules each day
How much longer will it last
I do not know, I just can't say
Is this present, future or the past?

The days blend one into the next
Stretching on forever, they never end
This sadness will never, ever pass
It's wounds and scars I just can't tend

It's feeling too much, too deeply
Or not feeling any thing at all
Ever down, and down so steeply
Stop! Let it end! I cry and I call

The sounds of my yell echo off the walls
But the days are heedless of my cry
They ignore me and taunt me to no end
And leave me forever wondering why

By the movement of the sun in the sky
Do I count the passing of each day
But when it's ended do I know the difference?
Not on my life, no how, no way

The light has passed, this day is ended
And so as this day draws to a close
As the sun settles deep into the earth
Do I steel myself for another of those

Tomorrow will be today as today passes away
To become yesterday as it does always
But today will remain ever the same
In an endless string of unbroken days

    You amaze me with your writing Tony, giving so much too many. Many who do not realise that each day they are making a big difference to others lives. Please do not stop. Thank You (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
