One Day Soon

Image

As dawn approaches, her day ends
She takes her mask off
Remnants of the day go down the drain
Pulling her hair into a sloppy ponytail
All things sexy and frilly are on the floor

This isn’t the life I imagined, she thinks to herself
Once upon a time
I dreamed of something better
How did I end up here?
Sighing, she crawls into bed alone

She had aspirations of such things like college
Earning a degree and making an honest living
Finding the right guy perhaps, getting married
Maybe even have a couple of kids
You know, the white picket fence and other such things

Staring at the ceiling as the light peers in
She recalls the day her life changed
Someone offered her an easy way to make money
Assured her she’d have a bright future
Would never have to worry about how she’d make her way

He was right about the money, she makes plenty
But her life feels so very empty
There’s no one to share her dreams with
She goes to bed in tears nearly every night
Praying for the courage to change

“I’m better than this.”, she whispers to herself
Somehow I have to make things right
Use the money I have earned for school
Make something from the nothing I feel inside
It’s not too late to rekindle my old dreams

I just need the courage to walk away from this
To change, to go after a better life
“Give me the strength I need.”, she prays
My life will be one of meaning and purpose
I know it’s not too late, she tells herself

Closing her eyes finally, hoping for sleep
She resolves to change, to make things right
The courage I need is within me
I will find it and I will do this
One day soon

 

For anyone who has ever been there, who has ever wondered how they got where they are, has ever struggled with having the courage to change…this is for you. I am not sure why I chose the scenario that I did, it just came to me, but the message is the same no matter what anyone is going through. Courage can be found and it’s not too late to turn things around, not as long as one still has life left within them.
