Picture


I look at you
And the picture you display
Is a reflection of my thoughts

I look at you
And you’re the epitome
Of lovely insanity
And I trail right behind you

When I look at you
I want to cry
We’re in the same boat
We can help each other stay afloat

We’re in the same boat
We can help each other stay afloat
All that you portray
Are my deepest secrets

A picture of you
Unravels all my layers
I’m just like you
And how I wrack out
All of your negatives

If I had the courage
I would be who you are
If I had the courage
I would be a coward

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
