No Need For Trumpets


That is why there is no tear
in my eyes.
I already know am stained
with mud.
And no need to sound that
in trumpets.
Am no better than you,
I know.
And wonder why am not moved?
The mindset
is already in tunes with the
soulfaith.
Wonder why am not perturbed?
I dirty the clothes
whilst washing, and my deeds
and misdeeds
always finds me a faultfinder.
I already know
by half tone, I dont have the voice
to sing.
Before you label me pale, I already
accent to that.
I'm to worry, but I don't, and if I don't
nothing will worry me.
No need for trumpets.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
