If Someday Never Comes

 

“You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”
— John Green

 

I used to know
that someday I’d be happy
all the problems I had
would be gone
and joy would reign
No matter how bad things got
someday they’d be better
yet I found myself drowning
and crushed by my life
relationships failed me
and I returned the favour
yet still I held onto the dream of
someday

 

It got to much
and I gave up on someday
That day I needed freedom
That day I needed joy
That day I needed to love myself
I started working on it
and making changes
because the future was too far away
and the dream’s were ashes
I had sunk too low
and lost my dream of someday

 

Now I know
that happiness is a choice
and freedom is perception
Joy comes from within
as does love
It took a lot of effort
yet the today I’ve made
beats every dream of someday
