One Day


But if one day

Just one day

Just for a moment

Just a second really

All of this made sense

And I understood why it had to happen

And why it all had to be like this

Why I was cursed

And blessed

And born such a mess

If the clarity I seek

Comes to me

Even if only for the blink of an eye

Then I will no longer cry

But rather hold my head up high

Finally exhale


And let the feeling of peace

Wash over me

And fill my soul

With the light I seek.
