There’s a surreal feeling in the air today.
A feeling of time long gone, of an age yet to pass.
The day’s settling into its usual pace—
People preparing for their siesta,
Dog’s scuffling to find shade—
But something doesn’t feel the same.
Is it a change of seasons, or a shift in perception?
Another Saturday afternoon to while away
After the strains of a long week,
So what could this be that I feel today?
I grasp at straws, trying to put it together.
Everything around seems brighter,
The shroud of gloom seems to have lifted.
A long lost emotion rises within… hope?
I guess it’s time to move on, leave the past behind.
After all, we are not made to give up,
But to struggle and fight
To attain what our heart desires.
There’s a surreal feeling in the air today,
And I hope it is here to stay!
