Broken


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

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
