I WOKE AND I ROSE


Someday I Know
Ill wake from this dream
With nary a wimper
Much less a scream

It will be something new
Or so I would pray
A glimmer of hope
Like a budding spring day

I dreamt again
That I woke and I rose
I worked and I payed
Until Darkness repose

I dreamt again
That I woke and I rose
I worked and I payed
Until Darkness repose

I dreamt again
That I woke and I rose
I worked and I payed
Until Darkness repose

For God sakes
Please
Someone wake me
Someone take me
Before I wake again

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
