Long For Another Day (Poem by Brad Mace)


Why is it necessary for me to struggle
But only to make me all the more humble

Why is it necessary for me to sorrow
But only to make me long for tomorrow

Why is it necessary the tears that I shed
But only to make me not have a big head

Why is it necessary that things go wrong
But only to make me all the more strong

Why is it necessary for my heart to break
But only to make me not be a flake

Why is it necessary that I feel all alone
But only to make me long for my home

Why is it necessary to look so pathetic
But only to make me more sympathetic

Why is it necessary that I make mistakes
But only to make me not be a fake

Why is it necessary that no one understands
But only to make me strong to withstand

Why is it necessary that I feel this pain
But only to make me not be so vain

Why is it necessary that I feel this way
But only to make me long for another day
