Changing My Mind

Confidence up, confidence down,
Act like an angel, look like a clown,
Changing my mind, changing it back,
It’s all I need for a heart attack.

Smile at your failures, laugh at my own,
This isn’t right, should be home,
Under the duvet, safe from the black,
Changing my mind changing it back.

Accident prone, but never you worry,
I’ll tell you to leave in a big hurry,
Making up ground for the sense that I lack,
changing your mind, Changing it back.

I’ve done it again, Proved my reputation,
Is it smiles... Or is it frustration?
Statements once given, I cannot retract,
Changing my mind, Changing it back.

The notice I earn is diluted with pity
The smile that I give is a scorn which is witty,
While I hold my breath and start to lose track
You’re changing my mind and changing it back.

Fanciful feelings hiding a fool,
A cog that’s not turning, a bottomless pool,
Lend me what’s common, or just give a quack,
Because I’m changing my mind and I won’t change it back.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
