Damage

The sun is shining

and I am in the shade

a fitting symbol

for the life I have made.

The garden is empty

no one is around

except for the birds

and their beautiful sound.

This for me

is the best part of the day,

alone with my thoughts

and what they have to say.

On days like today

they are pleasant enough,

they leave me in peace

knowing that the night will be tough.

One hour with my thoughts

is all I can manage,

for to stay too long

could cause untold damage.
