To Whom it May Concern

By Amelia Cortez

when the sun comes up tomorrow

i'll have to put aside my sorrow

i don't have time to whine and complain

i gotta jump back up and keep counting my change

i could dwell on you

but when would that do

that would take up my time

and i don't have time to rewind

so i'll keep on walking though the streets of life

absorbing all things in my line of sight.
