Better Days Are Coming

by Wish Belkin, © 2001 

If you fear losing somebody you love 
like rejection would be no surprise 
even if they never said it out loud 
you just knew by the look in their eyes 
accept that anxiety is due to some action 
we took while sleepwalking through life 
we would be lying if we tried denying 
we cause our own misery and strife. 

There is a voice inside of our heads 
that tells us of what is to come 
deja vu turned upside down 
is what it may seem like to some 
whether it’s foresight or just premonition 
it leaves you feeling quite strange 
whisper or shout, it allows for no doubt 
that your fortunes are due for a change

The cyclical nature of the human condition 
prevents us from being at ease 
it bars the door to the peace that we seek 
it’s a lock without any keys 
hope and fear are two sides of a coin 
a little like Abel and Cane 
it’s not every day that just one will hold sway 
in the end it adds up to the same. 

Listen to this then, if you should find 
your emotions won’t give you a breather 
I’m telling you, dreams don’t often come true 
but the nightmares rarely do either.
