Young and...

There are certain things we continuously fight
There are some we won't ever change
Could you fill the place that forever empty?
Could you satisfy the heart that always hungry?

We do useless errand 
We talk nonsense chatter
But it always what you feel that important
Whether you have a faith or falter

So let's loosening the rule
Let's gathering the fool
And pay it on the end of the day
With anything worth left to stay

Let's digging the treasure
Let's explore the pleasure
Though we seem do nothing than play
We are struggling to live for a day

But they are just standing above the ground
Never see we try healing the wound
And nothing compare with the pain
When all we dream just in vain

And the story is repeated again
With another rhymes but same old song
There are so much things must be remembered
And the reminder also needs a reminder

Does it become my race?
If I walk my own pace 
Does it turn into my mistake?
If we collided and cracked 

Does it become my fate?
To walk the world full of hate
Does it turn to be my anger?
To challenge any danger

We will fight like some kind of warrior 
When every body laughing at our attempt
Escape from thunder above our head
That ready to strike with its wrath

We will run away as fast as we can
Clutching the precious thing we won't ever lose
Running from approaching storm
Hiding behind the walls of home

They will come every corner
The darkness, the despair
They will ask every owner
The question, the illusion

With me carry the scar
With you carry the guilt
Can I offer you hope?
Can you lend me strength?

Before our age is over
Before regret is stronger
Give us a chance to spark the light
Give us enough love for kiss goodnight

Because I don't want to end restless 
Even though I'm battered and weary
Don't close our door to happiness
Only because we are young and wary

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
