Poem: No New Day

No New Day

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Today seems so much like every yesterday
Waking up at 6am to get ready to go to a job
That isn't fulfilling
Clocking out at 5pm
Then heading home to
Watch TV
Talk shit with the person on the phone line for an hour or two
Then get ready for the next day
You know
The usual

Then lie in bed
And play out dreams in the mind
As before done a thousand times
Then to self
Vow a new start of tomorrow
Before sleep takes over


It's 6am
And still it's the same ol thang
And still nothing different has happened

A dreamer's procrastination

To a need for change

Maybe tomorrow

Will be that "new" day
