They And I


So they asked
And I answered
They told
And I left a word
They inquired
And I replied
They said
And I agreed
They asked again
And I insisted
They became curious
And I got tired
Then the battle began
It was they and I
They saw me
And I saw them
Their eyes glared at me
And mine flamed out
They were in my world
Destroying all my peace
And I was in their Universe
Burning down everything
They came back to their universe
Leaving my world in pieces
And I went back to my world
Leaving theirs in wrecks
So they were alone
Sitting on the ground
With hands crossed
On their knees
Droplets of tears falling down
On what was left of the grass
And I was lonely
Destroyed and hurt
Confused and shaking
Tears washing my cheeks
So they learned
Not to ask too much
But to help so much
And I learned
Not to say my piece
But say my peace
They and I
Met again
At the borders
Of my world and their universe
But this time
They did not ask
And I did not say my piece
So we became we
And destroyed the borders
For we learned another lesson
They needed me
And I was dying to have them.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
