I wake up this morning
With mixed feeling and uncertainty
Though greeted by a very good day
But I would be damned if I could ever be happy
'Cos the happiness in life is like bubbles floating away
Only to burst at the slightest touch when you try to hold it

I wake up this morning
Depressed and with no excitement
Though i tried to cheer up
But i would be damned if I could do that
'Cos the ills of life has taken the joy out of living
Only to be left with disappointment, pain and hopelessness.

    Sometimes it's better to not get up; a day in bed can make a lot of wrongs right. Hope you try it! :)

    Sometimes we wake up with that feeling that nothing can make you smile or spread a little joy.. I really hope that your day turns a brighter shade of grey!! A well expressed write ;)
