People These Days


Some people want to die
Some people want to live
Some people want to take
Some people want to give

Some people have family
Some people have friends
Some people love life
Some people wait for it to end

Some people need the help
Some people help the need
Some people want to share
Some people love the greed

Some people are weak
Some people are strong
Some people are right
Some people are wrong

Some people are smart
Some people are fools
Some people are wise
Some people need school

Some people have no mind
Some people have no heart
Some people keep us together
Some people tear us apart
So you see we are just one group
who live under one jealous

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
