waking up is like rising from your grave.

your palms push you up slowly and the
rest of your body begins to rise while your hair
hangs down aimlessly in from of your face

you hardly feel like you're alive.

but you do your best to prove to everyone
you see that you are just that: alive.

everyone it and the dead begins to smile
only, at the end of the day, to be buried
once again.
