A Good Day To Be Above Ground


I have the chance to create something

and any day,

with that potential,

is another day

worth being above ground for.


I have the chance to see someone I care about,

and any day,

with that potential

is another day

worth staying above ground for.

I played the guitar,

I read Dostoevsky,

I wrote a few lines

I danced my dance (shadow boxed for hours)

I taught people how to throw a punch

and do a push up

and I even have the chance

to see someone I care about.

By all standards

today is a good day to be alive.

So why doesn’t it feel like it?
