Solar Eclipse


Sunny day

Funny way

I had to pick myself up

Climb up out of this trench

It's somehow worse when it's sunny outside

and so black inside

Why can't any of the sun come in?

Black means

no friends are allowed

can't be bourne

nothing can penetrate

the eclipse

it's so painful

like a plant without sun

can't grow

the world will turn

another twenty four hours

where will i be?

at the bottom of the barrel

or sunny side up?

if you have no downs

can there be ups?
