Somthing to Live For


A fiery orb
Sinks into the ocean
Red liquid spreads
And drains into the shore

Sunrise and Sunset
Always on time
Something to trust
Something to believe

The bald face of the moon
The smile from a pure heart
Life is nothing without it
We are nothing without it

The streaming water
The open petals
The stinging chill
The thawing warmth

The angry storm
The frozen pond
All filled with honesty
Because that’s all they have

We put trust in it
A dropp of water
The rush of the wind
We put trust in honesty

Believe in life
Believe in love
Believe in care
Then you have something to live for

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
