Heart Divided, Mind Shattered
If anybody asks me if I am happy
by Doris Cornago
I would definitely say I am not
Having lost the meaning of happiness
between now and last night, I am sad.
Tomorrow, if anybody asks the same
I would jump in glee and say yes
I am definitely because there's me
The other side that longs to be free.
Yet again, in the future if time's short
And nothing is going right with work
I would be lost for words on what counts
For happiness - my freedom or serfdom.
You make me jump in anticipation
Whenever you have the gumption
But somewhere your procrastination
Causes a break in my exultation...
If it only depended on me, I work alone
but so much hinges on what you want done
Your heart divided, your mind shattered
We fell short, we are now fettered...
