The Lake Shows All


Is it true what they’re whispering in the streets?
Is it true what they are saying?
Is it true about what’s going to happen?
Is that why all the children have stopped playing?

The rumours are the hero’s here
The one that’s going to save lives
They’re going to save everyone
Fathers, children and wives

We’re told to meet them in the forest
Near the sparkling lake
We’re told to go one by one
Nothing needed to take

Everyone’s queuing to see the hero
Everyone’s queuing today
Everyone’s excited for it]
Everyone wants their say

People are leaving now
People are amazed
This hero must really be good
Because everyone’s left all dazed

My turn has come it’s finally here
My turn to follow the path
My turn to question to this hero
Hope there’s jokes to make us laugh

I enter the clearing near the lake
There’s calmness all around
I enter this peaceful zone
Without making any sound

I look around for the hero
I look for a long, long while
I look around high and low
There’s nothing but a leafy pile

Edging closer to the lake
I see a sign ahead
Edging closer slowly forward
The sign itself read:

‘You’re here to se the hero
You’re here to meet him now
You want your problems solving
Anyway, anyhow.

The hero is here today
The hero is standing close
The hero is very similar
With your eyes, ears and nose.

So yes my friend, you’ve guessed the end
So now you really see
That you can truly say to yourself
The hero lies within me.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
