The Start of a New Day

 article about The Start of a New Day

It is broad daylight,


Yet I am feeling down.


The sunlight almost seems to mock me,


As I wake up.





My coffee tastes bitter,


Oh, it wasn't stirred.


A fit of absent-mindedness,


Thankfully not disastrous.





My eggs are watery,


With the yolk overflowing,


I don't like the white though,


And tear it away with my fork.





Unfortunately life is not like eggs,


I can't just tear them apart,


What you like or dislike,


You have to take it all in your stride.





As I finish my breakfast,


And depart from the house,


A morning's moment of reflection,


Leaves me pondering as I start a new day.
