The Most Profound Abortion


I've tasted this life in generous portions
I've suffered greatly, but, in the Rain,
through all my pain,
I've smiled and played
I've seen men who trade
their hearts, and what it typically involves
Their courage and virtue
slowly dissolve
no room to evolve
and this can mortally hurt you
it seems
once you've had the most profound Abortion;
The murder of ones's Hopes and Dreams.
Thank God I've been given
The faith to go on livin',
and to always ask
for a beer or a flask
to wash down another one of Life's bittersweet portions.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
