Sunday 3am

Trying to be positive
Focusing on the fresh cut lawn
Listing to the birds sing bright
All at the crack of dawn
Look for another job
It’s been so long
Nine Months and counting
Since my self-respected was retrenched
Time is a blur
Time is irrelevant
Washing is done
Day is done
Learn to live on air itself
Government will tax it soon
Better run and save yourself
Cause nobody else will
King size bed is cold and alone
Painfully alone
Depressingly alone
Hopelessly alone
Survival is simplistic
Based on needs not wants
Based on reality and practicality
At the expense of hope and comfort
Dreams are distorted
The cost so high
The starting line is a mirage
Drifting away in a dream
Help is there
But who can be bothered
Reminded again that help starts at home
But what is a home when your all alone
Pleasures and Dreams cost
Hope costs
Living costs
Existing costs
Can’t afford them so all is lost
The hole gets deeper
The walls close in
The light has faded and is dim
Distant and cold
