Monotony

Again this morning
I opened my eyes.
Sometimes a laugh,
Or muffled cries.

A cursing start
An angry morn.
A prayer, lost,
My sanity? Gone.

To do and live
Again and again
Without creation
The persistent pain.

To know that life
Is new and fresh.
Yet, forced to live,
In a ridiculous mesh

Of lies and stupidity
And nonsense galore.
We have no time.
Only time for one more.

And so, at last,
The night she beckons.
Time to relax,
It's over, I reckon.

Dear God, I pray,
You've given us life.
Yet in your plan,
You included strife,

And pain, and suffering,
And all things rancid.
But why this gift, God?
For most of us have it.

It's dark and old,
And best served cold.
And we chew on it gladly,
Embittering and bold.

And so the night,
Turns into day.
The vendors shout,
The children play.

Not one to complain,
And thanking in vain,
I whisper silently,
"Here we go again."
