Robert Longley


Walking Alone


It is within the journey
We sometimes walk alone
It sometimes brings us closer
To things that we have known

Fear not what awaits you
This is no time to grieve
But a time of rediscovery
And trust what you believe

Absurd this must be seeming
But this is just a ruse
Events were set in motion
So you wouldn’t have to choose

It hurts but for a moment
And then come truth and light
With all of this behind you
Lets you sleep again at night

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
