Lady Darjeeling

Rookie - 53 Points (Switzerland)

horrid surprises

A powerful voice
Screaming in my head
It wants me to change -
Change something -

But it's so loud I can't even understand
Or think about what it might want
Deafening shouts
Whenever I am still
Painful cries
Whenever I hold my breath
Why am I deaf?

I want to understand
Why life holds such horrid surprises
Whenever peace arises

    sounds like a bad dream...the amply conveys..turmoil and hurt and unanswered questions
    the howling winds of adversity travel through the page at break neck speed.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
