first awake

it feels good to be alone
first awake while all still sleep
good and ills this day are not yet shown
it feels good to be alone
all thoughts are clear and mine to own
I can share or I can keep
it feels good to be alone
first awake while all still sleep

these days I choose to show and tell
“keep to self” just makes me sad
thoughts withheld create a prison cell
these days I choose to show and tell
not always easy – sometimes hell;
let loose the feelings, good and bad
these days I choose to show and tell
“keep to self” just makes me sad

as the day goes on, I’ll falter
but right now it’s crystal clear
lifelong patterns – time to alter
as the day goes on, I’ll falter
find my head back in the halter
letting others lead and steer
as the day goes on, I’ll falter
but right now it’s crystal clear

it’s time to let this poem end;
move on and face the day
force myself to stay in “not pretend”;
it’s time to let this poem end.
showing, keeping – need to find the blend
I know that there’s a way
it’s time to let this poem end;
move on and face the day.
