Low Times

Hey you
I can see you've got the blues
You could use a little sunlight
In your life

Do you long to feel the rain
Fallin' on your face
On a day when you've got nothin' to worry about?
But instead you find yourself in a storm
Drenched to the bone
Never feeling at home

You fear that nobody sees you
That you are here nobody believes you
Not even yourself

Falling down the slippery slope
You are wondering when you will hit bottom
When you can wash off all this muck in a friendlier rain
Until then, here you are again


  1. What a liberating last three lines! I lowe, one to read at low times indeed.

  2. Yeah, I always feel I'm falling down the slope and I think it'd never stop! If it does, then that's it. Well, you never know till it comes.

    Really loved it!
