Some day I’m enough

Some day I lose myself

Some day I flow with life

Some day life is strife

Some mornings bring hope

I am at peace with myself

Some mornings I lose the will

The will to rise and live

My past is laden with memories

Memories of love and ecstasy

Memories of despair and ineptitude

I cherish some, I abandon few

I feel trapped sometimes

Trapped in the conundrum of my thoughts

I’m learning to govern my vagrant mind

This mind that doesn’t let me revel in peace

I’ve questioned myself enough

But there are no straight answers

I’m learning to tame my desires

Not everything you wish, comes true

I’m learning to accept life

I succeed at it sometimes

I fail at it more often

I’m learning to accept that I’ve failed
