Have you seen a weeping willow
whose leaves are still, quiet and at peace?
A palm along a lonely shore
that moves not...there's no breeze.
I would take a day like that most days
even if boredom reigned supreme.
I would take a day like that today
where change and tragedy's lives in dreams.
I would prefer just nothingness today
where theres no hurt or pain in sight.
Where the tides don't turn and life is bland...
where theres no surprises or strife in Life.
I miss those days where nothing changes,
where just the status quo is met.
Where monotany and habits run...
from dawn to dusk and peace is kept.
