Broken - Poem by R.Benjamin Abate

Things don't last forever
But the greatness of
Things will last forever

We're clever for a second
Then we endeavor rebirth
Change our mind
Change our worth

Second guessing while
Seconds pass-
Are you feeling like
You're walking on Broken glass?

Always standing
In your own blood
But the crowd is watching you
On stage - throwing tomatoes

Then clapping-
Uncertainty wrapped
In the present
With Pretty paper

    Oh fame and brilliance can be so ephemeral and fleeting. Well said very eloquently. (Report) Reply
