Good Foundation - Poem by Toby
What is good foundation?
In a building maybe deep is strong.
But in a person is that wrong?
Found in mortal man with heart,
is a childhood which he can never part.
What then is a childhood strong?
And why did mine go wrong?
Painful memories they may fade,
But what of sadness, what of hate?
Sometimes they may seem to go,
but suddenly, they strike in your head.
And then, sadly you have found,
that they just lay dormant in the ground.
Oh, what did I do to deserve this fate?
And, how, how do I escape?
Tell me, stranger from afar,
I wish to escape this burning tar.
Searing, scorching ever long,
this is what I must deliver myself from.
From all this, to a fresh clean slate...
How can you endure the winds of fate,
When your foundations are all wrong?
