Response to the 48-Hr Community Challenge Media Prompt - Better Days by OneRepublic
Bad days are here to stay

The pain of it
Brings a tear to the eye
And a prayer to the lips
For just a moment of relief

The fear of it
Causes a palpitation of the heart
And a new lock on the door
For just a moment of peace

The stress of it
Brings a headache like no other
And a steamy bath of bubbles
For just a moment of relaxation

The guilt of it
Causes a great depression
And a chat with a professional
For just a moment of sanity

The worry of it
Brings a restless night
And a date with a sleep aid
For just a moment of shut eye

Better days are here at last

The idea of it
Causes the heart to lift
And a bit of hope to appear
For just a moment of happiness
