Why Must the Morning Come?

May 17th, 2018by 1bigzero

As evening fades to black
I escape into dreamless sleep
Why does it have to end?
Why must the morning come?

Sol ascends his throne
The play begins anew
But the story never changes
Only faces & names cycle through

Living was once held a virtue,
worth endless striving & strain
Once the curtain fell, the lies were revealed –
All is empty and vain

Why must the morning come?
Why can’t darkness and silence reign?
What fools we were to believe the con!
The evidence proves we’re insane.

Is it too much to ask to die in peace?
Earth is nothing but a prison cell
Whose walls send back my words to taunt me:
“Why must the morning come?”
