Rookie (England)

And Yet,


I see the world, yet I am blind
I hear the wind, yet trees stand still
I taste the water, yet drink the wine
I feel no pain, yet swallow the pill

I lay in bed still, yet am awake
I read the words, yet forget their meaning
I aim to give, yet succeed to take
I watch the stars, but see not they're gleaming

I strive to finish, yet fail to begin
I hate to love, yet love to hate
I'm happy to lose, yet scared to win
I control my destiny, yet resign to fate

I wish to live, yet think to die
I want to learn, yet stand to preach
I know the answer, yet still ask 'why? '
I need anyone's help, yet refuse all that would reach

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.
