Gasp

Draw a deep breath and run another mile

hold your fist against your chest and

run again and smile

pushing the ground away

through the dark Tokyo streets at

the crossroads of scared and lonely

Draw a deep breath and sing another song

to the sleeping baby girl you made

whispering sorries for all

the times you’ll do her wrong,

you know you’ll let her down

and how powerless you will be to make her happy

Draw a deep breath and write again

listing all the pain

that still resides deep in the

dark recesses of your patched up heart

Draw a deep breath and run another mile

drink one more beer and smoke one more cigarette

and let out a bitter smile

because in the morning you will get up again and run another mile

in the shoes you’ve always been in

the skin you never felt right in

and the life you’ve always fucked up in.
Gasp and taste the morning chill

swallow the bitter fucking pill

and notice all the beauty that surrounds you

and smile, sincerely smile,

and then run another mile.
