The Curious Case of Bitter Brave


I don't live for everybody's happiness
I don't live for everybody's word
I don't live for everybody's expectation

I hate to wait, I hate to move away
I hate to lose, I hate to try hard

I don't live in everybody's imagination
I don't live in everybody's world
I don't live in everybody's promise

no chain against my will
I want to walk with my own feet
want to talk with my mouth
want to see, to hear, to feel with all senses

I don't have my breath
I don't have my body
I don't have my soul

I don't know how long my heart beats last
but I want to keep little of my mind
little of sweet memory
little hope for myself

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
