Surreal Reality

Today began inside a mist
My thoughts; they seem the same
Just out of focus and surreal
As pride outwits the shame
So long upon a waiting list
With ev’ry day the same
And now at last I truly feel
I live up to the name

And through the mist the sun broke in
So I could see the light
The tunnel coming to its end
Like morning after night
Too long I thought my life was sin
My being never right
No longer must I thus pretend
The future now in sight
