Some Optimism During Pessimistic Times

I wander around the crowd
The noonday sun
Shining down on everyone
I stop and wonder
And try to define my biggest blunder
But maybe its not all on me.

Surely there's mistakes I've made---
More than just a few---
But during this shit show parade,
Dead ends come out of the blue,
And then there's nothing you can do
But start again.

So that's where I am,
And maybe I should
Give less of a damn,
Because it hasn't all been bad,
And even though I'm sad,
I have made it through
And there's nothing
I can do
But feel this light that's shining,
Find my own way,
And live for today.
