June 3, 2022


everything tastes of grey today

sad and bland and unfulfilling

like theres a filters been removing

joy from the wonder of being alive

pleasure from the beauty of the day

life is being robbed of its splendour

even Handels trumpets taste of mourning

play slow, sad dirges into despair


even the certainty of my redemption

scarce dents this overwhelming gloom

yet it alone keeps me keeping on


how can it be that I can feel so sad

who lives amidst astounding wonder

how can it be that this is who I am

who lives the most blessed of men
