will I make it|

(for all of us holding on tight)



what broke the camel’s back

too much straw


or a gentle touch of straw

like a lover’s whispered breath


what will it take

to break


this streak of bad luck

that erodes my energy


like the lapping of waves

on the ocean’s shore


how much more is coming

with this storm


a little more of this

to top off a lot of that


what will it take

to break


this bad news spell

I’m going through


they say celebrities die in groups of three

I say problems shouldn’t exceed three


bad news comes like a cresting wave

hang on sloopy, keep on hanging ten


I hear my voice

each and every day


take it as it comes

tomorrow I’ll begin again


somehow I’ll keep

on top of it all


I’ve always heard

it’s darkest before the dawn


I hope the dawn

will be here soon
