Climbing Up To Success


Protruding through the hearts of pain,
Supernatural beings bridging the joys of gain.

Deceived by the looks of appearance,
Pierced in hearts of men words of utterance.

To the known world an empty vessel,
But to the Unknown can hustle to wrestle.

Come into the heart and feel,
The drinking cup of the tea and kneel.

Begging for deliverance in the cold,
Healing of sins into blanket fold.

Guess its time to run far, faraway,
To find comfort in pain along the way.

All pleasures might be the same,
But my life can never be a game.

Step at a time, slowly I climb,
Higher and higher to reach the peak I limb.

Destruction at the end of the tunnel,
Success to rain in the forest of jungle.

Acme! ! Riding to the peak at its best,
Acme! ! ! Fighting to lay on top of the rest.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
