The Sun Will Shine On Me

The Sun Will Shine On Me

A Poem by 송지석 / Ji-Suk

Are your shoulders heavy?
It’s not easy to put down the heavy baggage
Someone once told me that when you're feeling that your dreams are
fadoing that you should take a break

Are you struggling because of the same things
happening every day?
In the end, you’ll fall down anyways so you just need to stand up again with the help of a friend 
When you’re struggling and feel alone
just listen to music even if it can make the pain go away a little bit

Even if things are hard and you don't think you can handle it
It’s ok, it’s ok, it’s ok Things will become okay as time goes on
Everything will be ok. I believe in you 

It’s been three years long years. No one wants me 
I got fired from my last job due to the company running out of money
I wonder if I should go to the army
I told my parents my idea and they sighed ignoring me  
So I couldn’t tell them what I wanted to do

Once I landed a job, I got fired from my one part-time job
Yesterday my friend who’s about to get discharged from the army went on vacation. 
He said that it’s frightening and that he forgot everything he learned in college

There are a million unemployed people 
I wish that number was in my bank account so I can live endlessly

It’s like standing at the edge of a cliff
What am I doing? No what should I be doing? 
What can I do when the sun can't shine on me
It’s an answerless echo

Why do I get abused by my superiors
And vent my anger?
I’m a small paper boat lost during voyage 
I force down my tears because I know it won't solve anything. 

I know that I’m being a fool 
But I pretend I’m ok in front of others
Where did my optimism go?


Even if things are hard and you don't think you can handle it
It’s ok, it’s ok, it’s ok Things will become okay as time goes on
Everything will be ok. I believe in you 

My loving family, my friends who are my family
It’s been so long since I’ve seen them
I believe in you and know you can pull through this storm 

We always say, let’s grab some kimchi and drink up our sorrows
It wouldn’t be bad if I could spend some time like the old times of laughing and being a fool
Then I wouldn’t be so lonely right now

Everyone probably feels the same as me


Even if things are hard and you don't think you can handle it
It’s ok, it’s ok, it’s ok Things will become okay as time goes on
Everything will be ok. I believe in you 

My loving family, my friends who are my family
It’s been so long since I’ve seen them
I believe in you and know you can pull through this storm

Thanks! I am glad for it!
All of your poems are really good, I can't even write this good in any language XD
I like the line about that number being in my bank account, it's kind like a comic relief for the rest of the heavy, deep poem
