Rewind Repeat

As much as I try hard to stay positive, some days are really hard. I feel nihilistic and inconsequential. The repetitiveness of the same activities everyday is jarring. I guess today is one of those days. If any of you feel the same way, you are not alone. Here’s hoping this too shall pass.

Arise with the sun,
Day hundred and twenty one,
Caged within four walls,
The mighty man in thrall,
The monotony is killing me,
Rewind Repeat.
~
Will today be better?
How did we get here,
Living from day to day,
Watching aspirations fade,
Subjugated by disease,
Rewind repeat.
~
Arise with the sun,
Yearning the expunge,
Of this woeful rhythm,
Deeper into the abysm,
When will we admit defeat?
Rewind repeat
