Bling, bling- the call of a new day
But new seems hard, ironic to use
"Everyday's a loop on repeat" I always say
Perhaps, just A day, either way, I lose

"What shall my poison be this morning"
Studies or Responsibility- I wonder
In feeble attempts I scour at the thoughts, the ideas all too boring
"I'll attempt to loosen my strings, relax as some would say"
But the thoughts still linger, eat me up
Hours turn to days and my thoughts still nag and my duties still wait
How can I relax, there's so much still left on my plate, in my head, and in my cup?

"I'll race through it all, quick as can be"
Tik tik, hours, TikTok, days
...
Time was not at all very kind to me
...
And before I begin to terminate the last of it all and welcome rest
I watch the weeks' time evaporate into the winds' fate
And instead I welcome an onslaught of adventures
My strings beginning... to... unravel... my timing is all too late

Scourging fires blaze within me temptingly to surrender it all
Hanging from the edge of a chord
Tithering at the edge of a fall
Balancing on the edge of a sword

Yet I look upon a new day
A better day, where you'll be with me at last
All the golden light and white glory you'll display
In heaven's majesty and Earth's past
But every day until then will be
-another day
