not just a scar


when i look in the mirror
what do i see
many scars spread over me
but with each scar
there is a tale
from all the times that i have failed
but even though it sounds kind of grim
each one is linked to a happy time that i spend
from making doughnuts to riding bikes
from all grown up to a little tike
now that all these thoughts have cleared my head
i have to feel of bieng braindead
now when i look at the scars on me
bitter moments i no longer see
although those moments are still here
happy times are very near
so now when i look in the mirror i see
not just a scar but a memory

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
