Hidden Ray


I drag myself

Through the day

I force myself

To mask the pain


I hit replay

Day after day


I pass away

A little more each day

The day grow grey

But I can see the ray


Even if I’m astray

That little blue jay

Will remind me of child’s play


Oh what pathway

Should I portray--

Or just run away

During the school day

And make my way

Through the castaways


Someday the rays

Will blaze  

They may be delayed today

You may feel betrayed

but one day

make way

for the delta ray


For the devils ray

He has overplayed

And will fade away
