Run Of The Mill - Poem by Idris El Asha

Sorrow;
Is a mill
Going round and round
With a lot of blood.
And it's tragic

Joy;
Is a mill
Going round and round
With a lot of wine.
And it's God's plenty

Pride;
Is a mill
Going round and round
With a lot of sweat.
And it's majestic

Pity;
Is a mill
Going round and round
With a lot of ooze.
And it's pathetic

Life;
Is a mill
Going round and round
With a little love.
And it's worth living

Death;
Is a mill
Going round and round
With a huge riddle.
And it's worth trying

Hate;
Is a mill
Going round and round
With a lot of noise.
And it deserves dismantling

Love;
Is a mill
Going round and round
With a lot of energy
And it's worth building.

    Well i so admire yor poetic mill! I tink anyone with no muse cud get his mind in a windmill of muses inspired by dis impressive poem. I esp likd yor creative line of death being a riddle. (Report) Reply
