Hard To Live

Hard To Live

A Poem by Kate Whitaker
"

Actually song lyrics from a fictional band, Touch of Orange, created for my book

"
It’s getting harder & harder to wake up everyday,
Hit after Hit my heads still in dismay,
I can't slip this pain,
Driving my thoughts insane,
So many wasted years,
Uncried tears,
Can't quit this stabbing feeling, shiv,
It’s getting harder & harder to live.
Not feeling the love today
Not feeling much today
I'm taking bong hits like band aids
Rip it quick to feel no pain
There's no sunshine through the rain
The tears are coming down again
Every single day is the same
When it feels like you're your only friend
Awakening to thoughts of yesterday
I wonder how these thoughts transcend
With all the madness in the way
There never seems to be an end
It's been hard to live
When there was so much to give
Not feeling the love today
Not feeling much today
I'm taking bong hits like band aids
Rip it quick to feel no pain
I get nothing back
Until I take a whack 
I lose myself in a world of wonder
Flying so high I can feel the thunder 
And I'm feelin real fine
Thoughts and emotion intertwine
Until I drift back to where I've been stayin
remembering why I was always prayin
It's because I've got no more to give
There is no end when it's hard to live
Not feeling the love today
Not feeling much today
I'm taking bong hits like band aids
Rip it quick to feel no pain

Author's Note

Kate Whitaker
I did not write these lyrics alone. I wrote the refrain and three friends freestyled the lyrics. However, I was given them by my friends to use as I wanted for my book.

sometimes, a bong hit is all we have for our sanity. i prefer the brownie and cookie approach, having lung cancer. a profound and seething write on your part. i thoroughly felt this one.
