Why did I chide her?
Sitting and sobbing,
In a room near the stair,
And my ears listening,
My heart throbbing
With her cry, not fair,
My mind says, I did to her,
Sometimes I’m a little rude,
Though always good at heart,
Sometimes heart is so full,
That it could fall apart,
Sometimes I smile and wonder,
The heart I loved is gone forever,
And the life is like a shallow river,
No depth to charm the swimmer,
Sometimes, autumn
Sends withered leaves,
Blowing and rustling all day,
Like a tattered, flying mass,
Splashing my heart’s window glass,
Sometimes I’m happy and sad,
Sometimes I’m warm and cold,
Sometimes I’m alive and dead,
Sometimes it’s all in my head,
Situations keep changing,
The world keeps spinning around,
While from within I’m whirling around......

    Man is a bundle of contradictions and a mammoth pile of antagonistic emotions! Even in the height of joy, a sad thought can set in and steal all our happiness!

    Sometimes, autumn
    Sends withered leaves,
    Blowing and rustling all day,
    Like a tattered, flying mass,

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
