Concept Of We


If it is so, then let it be
I let it go to see if it would come back to me
If it's yours then set it free
No ifs, but, or even maybes

Your choice to disagree
It won't fill your heart with glee
The signs are there for you to see
You don't have to listen to me

This advise comes without a fee
Clutter not your heart with debris
They say things always come in threes
In love we are all refuges

Only your hair you should tease
Set your mind at ease
You can't always do as you please
Not everyone you can appease

Blood from a stone you cannot squeeze
To life you've been given the keys
Likewise the birds and the bees
The nectar of life for you to seize

Foulness carried by the breeze
Not only in winter things freeze
In your face the nasty sneeze
They are canines filled with flees

Grapes from the vine for you to retrieve
If you don't like it, you can always leave
If you have lost, you should grieve
Some just practice to deceive

You must give to be able to receive
Concepts bold for the lame to conceive
To conquer you must first believe
The storm passes always giving a reprieve

Treasure only good memories
This world is filled with enemies
Can't live your life on your knees
Get to work and roll up your sleeves

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
