You Could Shine


Am i being unreasonable
or am i being weak
i always knew i was out of my mind
i'm a chewed up and spit out freak
change your mind
just to change it back
maybe it's sadness that i lack
because i'm an elastic band
im the life line on your hand
it doesn't matter who says so
nor does it matter where you go
theres no fun in making sense
bound and leap over the garden fence
into my house of fun
my house is the sun
forget about tears
leave behind all your fears
live like me
you'll see
how you could shine
be the best you could be.

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
