A day in Black

I woke to this hollow thoughts,

look what my decisions wrought!

I tire of the scorching sun,

and waiting til day’s end for my turn.

I lost my eyes in the books,

It was where I was shown to look.

I find myself trapped searching.

This pages tell nothing about living.

“What will you do in the future?”

Is there a day you’ll ever be sure?

My ears ache hearing what’s at stake,

Another way to limit the breath I take.

Does it suit me to be in black?

I can’t seem to find what I lack.

Maybe I shouldn’t read books of law,

It doesn’t show me any of my flaws.
