I GOT IT


I am tired of praying but still I have to
My honor and my life are of value
See the glory how could I keep?
Characters die as loved ones weep
There are no secrets but what lies ahead
Loving me more but hurting me instead
The things I do now and the life I have led
Grasping for the love of the ones who are dead
Bowing my head in prayer agreeing I will try
Avoiding contact through the eye
So, that no one can recognize my fable
My emotions and reasons are unstable
I bring nothing to the table
So life would you please stop offering me your favors!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
