Another Day (46/365)

Another day
Another dollar
Another pill
I have to swallow

Another chance
To shed my skin
But more like
Waiting to begin

I spin my wheels
Here in the mud
Flinging dirt
And pumping blood

I’m learning more
With each new day
How to live
And love more ways

I note the beauty
That I see
Colorful trash
A bright new weed

But late at night
I lie alone
And dream of orbs
So far from home

And where I’ll live
After this life
Or how I’ll feel
When I’m a wife

And whether kids
Will calm my angst
Make me feel
Less out of place

Or whether
I will always be
A stranger
To this planet E
