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.
