When Things Aren't Right.


The cock crows and the night arrives
The sun arises and a feet freezes
The rain falls and he dies of thirst
The future is foreseen and the past is foretold
Things aren't right
That explains a life, his life

His past holds unto his present
His present fears his future
And his future weeps at awakening
Because all his toil had been a foil
His paid the price but not a prize in sight
Its cost so much but loss has been his curse
All his experience had been a pain
And now, at the edge of given up
Suicidal stares him at the face
Begging for an embrace.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
