I Dont Know the Words to Your Life Story


Your face is gray
In the cold dead winter
You open your mouth
To tell me a story
Your teeth clack together
And you look into the distance silently
You are dissapointed
I can tell
Your mouth opens again
And this time you speak
It's your life story
It's filled with happiness
And good luck
Then how did you end up here?
I turn away
You grab my shoulder
'Tell me my life story Gib' you say
I am afraid
I turn back around
' I dont know the words to your life story'
Then I walk into the grayness

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
