Don't Break Down Yet

If your voice is breaking

May be, you're riding life
At a breakneck pace

Push the break pedal
It won't break anything
It'll only be a break in the cloud

You may not be seeing well
May be, you haven't take breakfast
You just need to break bread
You haven't break any commandments

It's just break day
You can still break even
So don't break down yet
It is not noon yet
Lucky! you haven't break a leg

Just you know, heart can't be breaking
It's just the breaking promises
The emotion, the feelings that on replay
The breaking news is:
Heart only bending, can still be straighten
So, Don't break down yet.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
