A River Flow

I feel the same.
Deep within,
I can never change.

I'm waiting for the day
I fall head over feet;
Like I did with you.

(No names necessary.)

I'm waiting for the moment
I can erase my fears;
Change my world view.

(No explanation, really.)

I feel the same.
Deep within,
I can never change.

I look back and notice,
Progression to where...
I need to be in my life.

(I know I'll get there.)

I look in the present,
I can't sense a thing...
The strength of my own vice.

(Over exposing my own thoughts here.)

I feel the same.
Deep within,
I can never change.

This is what I know,
No matter what is brought'n
For tomorrow,
Nothing can change me.

(Time. Money. Relationships. Success.)

Except for me, myself, & I.
So let this life ride.
No control. A river flow.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
