bad day

bad day

A Chapter by christine zapanta andes
"

...walk of faith...

"

where is the passion when you need it the most?

You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost,

..you’re faking a smile with the coffee you go,

You tell me your life’s been way off line..”

 

            This is how Daniel Powter  revealed a profound inconsiderate unfulfilling phenomenon of almost seven-hundred-minute of disappointment and rejection as incorporated by such symphonic lyrical-catharsis which he preferred to  call a ‘bad day’. As the beating goes through my once-dreary-tainted-luck suddenly twisted into a glimpse of smile. Ironic. That’s all I can say after I was caught in the middle of a once-viewed perfect day slowly pissed off.

            When you wake up early, open your mail, you’ve been waiting for days, to see if you got any from your friends just to figure out there’s nothing but the emptiness itself, it’s BETRAYAL; when you hunt for job, cheered up as you can yet nobody dared to call, it’s REJECTION;  when you tried to write for W. C. and writer’s block friended you, it’s a DAMN! Life eventually goes on with or without you. But at the end of the day you’ll just end up laughing at yourself, thinking about how you’ve done silly things for silly stuff. You still got your essence, right? I’m not merely talking about existentialism here or how people exist first then finding out their real purpose later. This is more of considering the fact that there’s still a thin red line that deviates sanity from insanity and that’s what you call OPTION. Care if pain sits beside you the whole day?; or solitude embraced you for comfort; or even tears become your only glimmering accessory; the thing is, you still have the choice of just absorbing the reality itself and become passive or free yourself and walk for hope. The fact that after a day of twist and turns and listening to this absurd song, I know I do the right choice, as my lips curved to smile while this destined sonata keeps on tellin’ me, I had a  bad day.


coz you had a bad day, you’re taking one down

You sing a sad song just to turn it around,

You work at a smile and you go for a ride

..you had a bad day…

You had a bad day…”

Ha, I actually like this, it's amusing. I think the run ons and fragments actually help to make it more interesting than a normal essay or something. Taking Powter's song as your point of departure, you give a really good personal account of how a bad day is like and unfolds. It makes me think, and at the end it's even uplifting, so I liked it.

So you took a song and you wrote a chapter about it? I'm confused. Unless this is a book of prose (poetry), in which case it all makes perfect SENSE. No grammar issues that I could see. Overall good job.
