Five Days


It has been five days, since two hours ago,
Why time passes this way, today, I really don't know.
*
I have seen and felt and heard and thought,
But understanding, those things, I have not,
I seem to no longer be able to comprehend,
When will this fog lift? and confusion end?
*
It has been two weeks since we first spoke,
Not a single puff, or a single toke,
I have quit that to forget my time,
Embracing you and making you mine.
*
But my world is still, swirling,
I feel like I'm twirling,
Trying to catch a view,
of all these things that are new.
*
Then, there is school,
And momma didn't raise no fool,
I've been doing my best to keep up,
But there is too much in my cup.
*
It' has been five days, since two hours ago,
And although time moving this way, today,
Is exhausting, I'm kinda glad time is going slow.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
