blue pearl


I need hope


On the rugged paths
Of my silent life
Strange roads and intimidating sights
Vaccum air i tried to breathe
Suffocate my thoughts
And my being

With blazing sun on both sides
Burning my senses
And my mind
All i ask is
A dropp of hope
That would give me courage to cope
I am holding brazen dreams
With broken life and barren eyes

Toil and tired
In the blistering heat
Still trying with bare feet
A selfish conscious
I carry around
That tears up my soul
And rip my mind
All i ask is courage and hope
That would rinse my plaguing soul

A melancholy sound
I follow around
That dampens my nerves
And drove me wild
I searched around for a glint of hope
Around the valleys, under the stones
When i found
Nothing to hold
I let go of my burning soul

All my power and my senses
Crumpled down in mere ashes
I let go of my dying searches
When all i found was havoc and haze
Now i am just a hollow being
Wandering around in drained streams
When all i ask was courage and hope
That would rinse my plaguing soul.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
