Rookie - 10 Points (1986 / Wisconsin)

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 Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
