An Act - Poem by Jacqui Broad

I found myself on the
side of majority,
and I knew,
I was on the wrong path.
I found myself in a
crowd of fools -
stupidity, sometimes,
needs a laugh.
To turn your back
on the world,
is very hard.
But to stand straight,
is very smart.
I have no words of
wisdom,
to share today.
I must live my life,
the best possible way.
To be wise,
and then act a fool.
Why did I even bother,
to go to school?
Then again,
you don't get taught
about the ways of life.
It must be
voluntary to strive.
I've scored some goals,
dropped a few.
Tomorrow's start
is brand new.
I must turn to
another empty page,
and hope I don't
fall off the stage...

    Hey Broad! Yet again you rocks with poem. What a simplicity! yet some thing pulls the attention of the reader.
    'another empty page,
    and hope I don't
    fall off the stage.'
    I remember one Kamala Das (Self confession poetess - hope check in the net) . You have the style of hers in writing. Great going and carry on...
    For Take the crown color brown made by pure heart of gold! Ha! Ha! Ha! :) :) :) :)
