And If You - Poem by Aram Stefanian

And if you save your soul,
You won't feel deserted.
And if you break your ties,
You can't be alienated.
Evolution, absolution,
You can nowhere find a solution.
Recognition, demolition,
Better turn off the ignition.
Rewind your tick-tock to get
Back to your childhood.
Your negative attitude is
Ruining your manhood.

Is there enough room
When you're six feet under?
Who cares now if you're a
Smart guy or a gutless wonder.

And if you get nowhere fast,
Can you play for keeps?
And if you're a sitting duck,
You hafta read my lips.

    I like this little poem a lot. How quick shall we move through life in what direction and for what? Sometimes we need to go back to see what going on now Your poem is clever and different With love Pia (Report) Reply
