Grey days

It's a grey day
With endless grey skies
It matches my low mood
Let me tell you why

The road seems endless
Constantly hemmed in
No light on the horizon
How's that to begin?

But over 'that' fence
Are fields of wonder
With beauty living wild
To that I surrender

Despite the grey day
I'll find my sunlight
With friends around me
I know I'll be alright

..oh, i genuinely like this.. reading the first lines, i thought the entire poem would be sad... i'm glad it didn't end up that way... you've given justice to this by remarking some positive views in life t'wards the end... great take... smiles...
