The Shattered Windows


Read over the novel again again
Over and over it's just the same
The same old jokes the same old lies
The untold stories of our lives

The small secrets to which unfold
Into this world to be told
No more hate no more regret
Of your own life which you can bet

The shattered windows the broken bond
Each tell a story of which was less fond
The shouting and screaming that wouldn't stop
The open picture that you couldn't crop

The deadly fortune was it the love
Memories which we couldn't shove
But what is done is done to stay
Can't undo these things today

Follow the same routine time again
Everyone else will do the same
Lead the life to which untold
Hoping that it will soon unfold

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
