Effervescent jewel of the eastern sun

Bubbling concoction of exuberant fun

Where do you go when the day is done

Are you tired of always being on the run

Slipping in and out of hope

Wonder if I’ve given myself too much rope

Enough to hang or just a little slack

Where is the point of no turning back

One day at a time they always say

The future is hazy and filled with gray

Maybe tomorrow the hope will stay

Until then I’ll just have to live for today
