Afraid of the Best

I am afraid of this, though be my best

A cause of great concern

Will I see you soon or ever again?

I fear my best shall fade one day

And watch my ways descend

To an unfavorable end

I know my dreams were not always golden

But still they were of my chosen

This vile world has a say

In what you want to do today

I only hope my best will come again

To keep me in life‘s lost lane

And shield me from this vile I now fear

    Its like when two people get to like each other, get married and after a while 'one' person decides that all shouldn't be well anymore.. I like it.. I like the idea of all things should be the way they are static.

    Nice, i guess we all feel this way at times, especially on days when we feel we could have done better.

    This is a nice poem about the fears and dreams we all share.... If you read my poems you will see why I can relate!

    Best poems come out of you and hold you aloft. The guiles of the vile world cannot stop your ascension.
