Anyway

Our Daily Bread By Phillip Brent

Our Daily Bread
By Phillip Brent

Still he says and still he says
He is not the one
Not the one they want
Not the one they need
In one place
He believes this
Other places, he knows
Knows he’s lying
If only to himself

When she says and when she says
You cannot mean me
I’m nothing special
But, yes
I can do that
One time she hopes
They will believe her
Other times, she believes
She is the one they need

Despite what we say and despite what we say
We are afraid
We bluff and bluster
And we pray
On one day, we pretend
We are brave
On others, we think
We are just faking it
No matter what we do or say

Life goes on
Anyway
