Bleak Days

Today is a bleak moment
In this journey called life
For on this very day
Everything was so hard

From the first light of day
Everything went so wrong
The heart faltered greatly
The elements conspired gravely

In the height of the sun
There was no place for shade
As it battered my body and soul
With its merciless heat

Even in moments of victory
It felt so empty and futile
That I can’t help but think
Whether the sweat was worth it

Worse is the nagging feeling
That something is amiss
Or something dark and gloomy
Is waiting along the wings

In the end I just
Felt so defeated
That I just wanted to
Close my eyes

And sleep…
