Hopeless days, oh how I despise thee.
Though the sun still shines like always
And the colourful birds still calmly fly free
You come from the shadows in a haze.
And when you come sadness reigns
Because you chase all the love away.
I dread your arrival so much it drains
And when you leave it is myself I betray.
Yet it is you, hopeless days, that brings me hope.
It is you who reminds me not only of all I’ve lost
But also how far I’ve come up the slope.
And though it is you that shows me the cost
Of all the bad things I have done in the past
I know that if I had never experienced those things
I wouldn’t have become who I’ve become at last.
Hopeless days it is you who creates my wings.
