A Good Night Sleep


Sometimes my heart burdened be,
Like the sun setting across the sea,
By bad schooling and bad memories,
And the past, swarming like honey bees

I’m tired of pleasing people,
Because no one is really pleased,
They say, forget what’d hurt you,
But don’t forget what it teach’d, (taught)

I would try not to forget a thing,
But not by any means,
Cause I try and forget everything,
To get a good night sleep

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
