Another Day

by Randy Harrill                 

Living seven lives at once, and not really finding comfort in any of them, is just another day
Come closer and look into my eyes, and whatever you see, don?t blink or look away

You will see the fire of hope in them, like the first time I talked to God and really believed that through the force of my will, I could change the world

You will see the sadness of uncertainty, like when my best friend died, and I knew not how to save him, nor how to grieve the loss.

You will see the passion of escaping lava, freed after millions of years of pressing against the earth. Like the time I climbed the Eiffel tower at Kings Dominion with a beautiful stranger, and she and I exchanged passionate kisses in the naked breeze of the observation deck.

You will see the cold of a glacier, like the frozen heart of a soldier waking up on the battlefield, surrounded by dead and dying men, realizing that reality can be worse than any nightmare

You will see the ecstasy of a falcon soaring on the updraft at a cliff, like the time I got lost and happened on the most beautiful scene my eyes had ever witnessed, and I knew that somehow I was supposed to be there.

And if you are fearless, and look long enough, you will realize that you are seeing not only me, but yourself as well........

and it will be anything but just another day.
