Pookey's Poems

Rookie - 0 Points (03/06/1959 / Chicago)

Blackness


Scared I am of the blackness
Scared I am of the unknown
What is in store for me
And what is wrong with me

My life has finally started
With the love of my life
The one that picked me
Who finally found me

Tired I am of this stress of life
But this life I love so well
I can't help worry
of what tomorrow may bring

I can't be sick,
if I am it's just not fair
I've paid my dues
Now it's time to share

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.
