bother


I used to question
Now I am resigned
Minding my own business

I used to have a hard time letting go
Of the inequalities the injustices
I have given up

But today I read a voice
That spoke clear truth
Of what I used to see

I wonder
Is this ok
Is that ok

The voice was pure
But outnumbered
By people like me

And the others
Who don't know
They are no brilliant hope

I almost believe in war now
I have changed
It hurts to care

    It does hurt to car. Our life metamorphoses over time, until often we can't even recognize ourselves or
    who or what we used to be. And that is considered normal here. Only poets seem to notice that or try
    to explain it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
