WAS IT BECAUSE OF THAT BEUTY?


I was a blinded dackned-soul
Then i lit my pain on fire
I never needed to though away the baby
But together with the water I did.
Was it because of that beuty?

I was pregnant and I decide
I was of kind to say I love you
but I wasnt supposed to
For i have the one i love
but you beuty, created a fotune smile.

Was it because of your beuty?
Was it because of that acid-smile?
Was it because of thy evilness?

If only i was there to know you
I should have never wasted my energy.

Was it because of thy beuty?
that I even decided to lay down my fear
Only to impress you, to depress my soul.
Putting my soul on acidic-hot water.

Was it of that beuty that I abort my one and only love?
that i love you nor hate you.
A great leason I have learned.
to all who want to learn. 'Its not that beuty that you see
some thing inside will suffer you.'

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
