Perception

Wake up and go,
do what you do,
laugh like a fool,
try to play cool.
Go through the day,
no time to play,
emotions sway,
in disarray.
Hold a brave face,
keep it in place,
another chase,
an unknown race.
Good afternoon,
never too soon,
horrible swoon,
howl at the moon.
Another night,
turn off the light,
thoughts hold too tight,
slumber picks fight.

Wake up and go,
love what you do,
a happy fool,
naturally cool.
Go through this day,
make time to play,
emotions sway,
enjoy sun rays.
Bright smiling face,
that stays in place,
no need to chase,
effortless race.
Good afternoon,
time flies too soon,
internal swoon,
hello full moon.
A better night,
peaceful and light,
hold pillow tight,
slumber wins fight.
