Day By Day


Robin Lamont’s “Day by Day” track is frozen in time
Still bears significance today
As each day gets easier
Live
Learn
Move on
A two-day emotional meltdown was all it took
To re-claim what you shook

Day By Day
Your pride wounded from my one mistake
A young girl to control is whom you are to make
Immaturity is what you are born to be
As you cannot get past the beauty within me
For you define beauty on the outside
Having tunnel vision on the inside
Never a content moment
Always a rude complaining torment

Day By Day
A mockery of my talents and character were endure
Selfishness and rudeness posses your pride displaying you’re insecure
Where our Cantonese and Mandarin languages crashed
Six weeks of nightclubs, lounges, Dim Sum, dinning out, shopping, and karaoke’s we bashed
For I felt very smashed
How quickly you have dashed
As you continuously complained and hashed
Where our expectations clashed
That I was instantly rashed
Yet I tirelessly and promptly lashed

Day By Day
You’ve never appreciate any of my writing
For my poetic standards does not meet your criteria in defining good literature
This poem now rhyme
Where I put in the time

Day By Day
One by one
Step by step
I trek onwards
As the time passed
Where the last F becomes a reality
It will all soon become another fade memory
My armor of courage to be re-built
Stave off a broken heart

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
