Broken Clock - Poem by Sarah Cotnam

watching the broken clock
expecting to gain back what I've lost
expecting some simple things
from you, me and everything
my happiness is in the balance
and expectations in the offense
taking from nothing
and feeling bad when losing in the taking
watching the broken clock
maybe I've lost what I've lost
maybe there's more to lose
karma is a sad excuse
but keeps us happy.
we love being happy

    Beautiful poem. There's so much truth in every line

    'taking from nothing
    and feeling bad when losing from the taking'

    that will stick in my head for a min...really inspirational. great stuff.
