At the end of your stressful day, close
your eyes and erase the lack of appreciation,
overlook the absence of love, peace, hope,
freedom, and happiness you struggle with
to make your day whole again after you’ve given
so much of yourself away to make a living.
Remember all the days when God blesses you
enough to open your eyes to another day, release
the doubts like butterflies don’t fall asleep
with heaps of worries and regret weighing heavy
on your mind you may die in your sleep and
never get the chance to spread your wings and fly.
