Someday Song

Someday the singer of the song assures me through my car’s speakers things will be easier brighter Someday Someday Someday… I spent decades believing that bunkum holding fast to hope each evening my someday would arrive with the next sunrise Someone would rub the sleep from their eyes so that they could see something special in me fortune finally turning to smile my way as I worked my ass off merely to survive while waiting patiently as the clock kept on ticking and the calendar kept flipping Time running in rivulets through my fingers Someday never came for the cancer patient who died today or the homeless person who passed away tucked into their torn and tattered sleeping bag under the overpass to shield them from the rain For the battered child whose broken body was discovered dumped in a ditch For all those who chose this day to put an end to their pain How I loathe that song though I still sing along
