My Shower

I sat in my shower today
In hopes I could wash all my troubles away
A curtain of water enveloped my soul
And I hoped these emotions would wash off and roll
Away, away, far away
As I sat in my shower today

I sat in my shower today
I sat there alone with nothing to say
Too tired to stand I had to sit down
I chuckled and thought of Jackson Browne
What would he write, what would he say
If he knew I sat in my shower today

I sat in my shower today
Wishing and wishing I could find a way
For a conscious decision to come through at last
Instead of those memories that are locked in the past
And there they would have to stay
As I sat in my shower today

I sat in my shower today
How could I let my feelings betray
My desire to grow despite all the doubt
What is the struggle and what’s it about
And self pity became my forte
As I sat in my shower today

I sat in my shower today
With millions of reasons for which I should pray
Turned off the water, I sat and air dried
The only drop left was the tear that I cried
My strength would just seep away
As I sat in my shower today

I sat in my shower tonight
My body was clean but it didn’t feel right
The stains on my spirit still found a way through
And still there was nothing for me left to do
Because I was just too tired to fight
As I laid in my bed
With the thoughts in my head
Wishing and hoping
Complaining and moping
Knowing tomorrow
Would just bring more sorrow
And my best friend and pal
Is a worm named Mescal
I’ve been through this before
And I’ll go through it some more
And I’ll manage a smile yet despite
I lie alone in my bedroom tonight…….
