Spoken Word: The Morning After

Many campaigners are vying with intention
Crowded road with a gridlock intersection
You envisioned ways you can make her better
In a storm you’ll relinquish self and give her shelter
The ones before were good, but you are excellent
Without fear you’ll promise to lead with contentment
In confidence and with anxiety you burrow
Take a step back are you ready for tomorrow

You’ve vocalized in disgust; cringed, yet longing
Spend the last intolerable political years yearning
You’ve harassed and coerced a psyche to yes
Deep inside you’ve formulated you love her best
Being vulnerable subserviently exposing your soul
Surrendered yet acquiesce to play a role
With intent of commitment without sorrow
Truth is are you ready for tomorrow

Tomorrow, losing will be the ultimate heart breaker
The emptiness, disgust and shame a breath taker
Winners and losers were yesterday’s contenders
She chose though not necessarily the best for her
Every loser dissects and know why they’re better
Within the crevices of defeat searching for hereafter
When the dye is cast ink is dry and the voting is done
Waiting deliberating then accepting you were wrong
Then well wishers will tell you what you didn’t know
One is never ready for a heartache loss of tomorrow
