! ! The Same Damn Day - Poem by Kyle Shield Laster

I'm praying so fervently
That my life is beginning to ache
Due to a build up of lactic acid
In my faith.
When is metamorphisis?
How long til a change comes?
Give me reasons to panic,
To cry,
To cherish,
To feel.
Stars don't leave bed til morning's light:
Magnify the swelter of a sunny day.
Validate me.
Fascinate me.
Incinerate me!
I'm weary of the same sheets and pillows
That I die in every night anyhow.
I don't want to drink from 'my' coffee mug in the morning
After a shower with the same damn shampoo and conditioner again.
I need to die, but I need to live!
I want to live to see another day,
But I don't want to live in yet another day.
I have before given birth
To a new day, not tomorrow,
But to a new day
Where I was happy
And new,
But only dreaming...
