Poetry: ‘Groundhog Day’ (a sonnet)

Finally finished this Groundhog Day sonnet. It’s taken me about 15 months.

 

Groundhog Day
You wake up and the day is still the same.
You wake up and the day is still the same.
You wake up and today is yesterday.
You wake up and the day is still the same.

You wake up and the day remains the same.
Confused, unused to things that stay the same,
You wake up and today becomes the day
That something in the rhythm needs to change.

You wake up and create a better day.
You take a challenge and begin to play.
They marvel at the things you start to made.
She listens to the things you have to say.

You wake up and the day is still the same
Until you take the chance to wake again.
