Old Ideal


Hey! You were an ideal of mine
When you were smart, sincere and kind
But when you joined, the crowd of jerks
I thought I joined, a street circus
I'm glad to learn a lot from you
But sad that you became, so cool
It didn't change a thing, which already, you had
I just think what you did, was bad
You joined them, and gave up those
Who could've been yours, and fun, and all
You entered line of coolers list
And left my old 'Ideal List'
I'd just say, the thing you did
Cost you your title, 'Ideal Miss'
To someone who yet, valued none
Was a friend, or a rejected pun
You never know, the cause of those
Who change their colors, they come and go
Hey! You were an ideal of mine
When were you smart, sincere and kind?
Now, you are valued as someone in me
like an old ideal, or a fragment, maybe

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,
