Best Poem of Barry Conway

Life Is A Purse.

LIFE IS A PURSE.


LIFE IS A PURSE.

YOU HOLD THIS PURSE,
FILLED WITH COINS.
AS YOU LIVE THIS LIFE,
YOU TAKE OUT A COIN,
ONE BY ONE,
AND TOSS THEM INTO,
THE VAST OCEAN OF LIFE.

WITH EACH COIN,
WITH EACH TOSS,
YOU WATCH IT SINK,
LOST FOREVER,
IN THE DEEPEST DEPTHS.
YOU HAVE THE MEMORY,
BUT YOU WILL NEVER HAVE,
THE COIN AGAIN.

AS YOUR PURSE LESSENS,
EACH COIN,
BECOMES MORE PRECIOUS,
UNTIL THE PURSE EMPTIES,
AND IT TOO,
IS TOSSED INTO THE OCEAN.

Unfinished Childhood

UNFINISHED CHILDHOOD

HOW I MOURN FOR MY CHILDHOOD,
WEEP FOR THOSE HAPPY DAYS,
WHERE THE GREATEST CARE,
WAS GETTING ANOTHER PIECE OF CAKE,
OR ONE MORE BOTTLE OF FIZZY POP,
OR GETTING PICKED FOR THE TEAM ON THE COMMON,
