Am I the only one struggling
To keep my eyes open even when they feel heavy?
Afraid of what may come tomorrow
My stomach churns at these thoughts
Will it be filled with happy moments?
Or perhaps another disaster?
I know if I close my eyes now
A new sunrise will greet me in no time
A new sunrise, but still the same giant star
Hanging brightly on the same sky
Be it in the morning
Be it in the evening
Even if it's rainy or sunny day
It's still the same giant star
The one that has changed is me
I changed without knowing
Living in this harsh world, I became a coward
Just stay like this
I will never know what tomorrow brings
But I certainly don't want to hear another bad news
I won't accept another stranger calls
Hoping earnestly for the time to stop
And I get to stay here without fear for tomorrow
