I see things quite clearly in the cold light of day.

The long shadows of night have finally cleared away,

leaving only stark reality, not pipe dreams.

I finally see the way things are, not how I wish them to be.

***

Contrary to the way it should be, nothing is forever.

Sometimes, there is no easy answer,

just more questions--and nothing's a bed of roses,

as the cold light of day beats down, and exposes

the harsh truth for everyone to see,

instead of puppies and rainbows constantly.

***

So you'll heed my warning, if you are wise.

Don't live in a fantasy world, open your eyes.

Don't put your hands over your ears, and say, 'la, la, la',

and expect a comedy, when life is a drama.
