I WAKE UP THIS MORNING

Written by: WOLE FRANCIS

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.
