it’ll be okay

it’ll be okay, i tell myself
for what else is there left to say
when my heart and mind can’t take any more
of the bad things happening every day

the ones you don’t see or hear about
they’re the worst ones of all
when you don’t know what lies behind their eyes
until the moment when you fall

down on your knees praying for reprieve
that may not just come
for the world’s gone too dark now
where has all the love gone?

but it’ll be okay, we’ll tell ourselves
until we run out of things to say
but only half-truths and outright lies
and it’ll just be another day
