Look To The Sun


do not lose
your innocence
and replace it
with guilt
do not choose to walk
down the dark alley
look to the Sun

do not hold hands
with guilt and shame
and befriend them
they will ultimately
betray you

channel your passion
wisely into
a creative force
that will shatter
destruction

plant seeds in your garden
where fragrant life
can blossom
and the fruit of your labor
can be squeezed into divine
nectar poured
from a crystal goblet

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
