It’s a sunrise
It’s a sunset
It’s the memory of the onset
Of a lifetime full of wonder
And the constant falling under
Full of finding every good thing
To be added to the sadness
Like you’re running from your laughter
And your sense of it’s a wonder
And the only time for brilliance
What did you do to be like this
And what do you do
When you feel it and you don’t go
Pretend that you don’t know

    General CommentFor me, this is about the agon of morning.

    Waking up; apprehending how each new day offers so much possibility - of joy, of meaning. But this all depends on your agency, which eludes you when you're down and low.

    The residual recognition of failing and having failed to live fully each day, as time continues on, each sunrise and sunset, only deepens the powerlessness and loss.
