Great Expectations

I am frightened
And hard to admit
That I am scared
That will be all of it

Moments will pass
And to no purpose
While I worried myself
With thoughts that were endless

My effort for not
What was desired
But it was only mentioned
And never required

Sun will set but that
Will not be the only fall
When the moment passes
And that was all.

    Your poem surpassed the theme of Charles Dickens. You refer to a 'Sun, set not being the only fall' It is a real vacuum 'when the moment passes'. Dramatic, so poetic. I give it a 9+ just as a starting point. Keep on working in such strong ideas, always with the own colours of your own voice. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
