Maybe Tomorrow

Maybe tomorrow.

We could pick the pieces up,

tell ourselves that we’re enough.

 

Maybe tomorrow.

Our world won’t seem so dark,

or the smiles so far apart.

 

Maybe tomorrow.

We could catch ourselves a break.

Convince the crowd we’re not too late.

 

Maybe tomorrow.

We will hold our hands up high

and confess, we really tried.

I write…

 

To be the hero I wish I was.

To make the choices that I can’t.

To be the voice of those who battle

with the dragons in the dark.

 

To be the one that has been chosen

to fight the fairer fight.

For the feral and the fallen.

To always know what’s right.

 

I write because I have to.

I don’t know another way.

To live a life that dreams are made of –

It’s my one and only way.
