The Day

Lazy mornings, coffee in my hand
When the soul is restful
And the mind is calm
Are the best part of the day.

It’s when I’m ready to take on the world,
Before everything gets ruined
By people’s lack of courtesy
And by my incapacity to deal
With everyday trivialities
I’m getting better at it, though
I stopped lying to myself, for one,
Now I only lie to others
It’s how it works
If you want to make it out of the day
