ANOTHER DAY


Another Sinner, A Tainted Saint
A Dubious Winner Without Restraint
Another Reason, Another Plaint
A Tricky Adversary To Clash Against

Another Battle, Another Brawl
Another Back Against The Wall
Another Body, Another Pall
A Modest Step, A Mighty Fall

Another Predicament, Another Doubt
Another Setback, Another Rout
A Small Accord, A Big Fallout
Another Setback To Think About

And Lo Behold, Another Day
Another Demon For You To Slay
Nobody Cares About Yesterday
Another Chance...Go Find A Way!

  9. This is profound and what stayed with me is this - Another Demon For You To Slay, Nobody Cares About Yesterday. Seems we are all moving ahead without meaning and no one is questioning the deeds that are done!
    Enjoyed reading it CRD! Good luck through the challenge.
