With A Doing Done One Can Prove


Healing from an ache is a big deal.
To maneuver skipping over many hurdles.
And doing what it takes is a big deal,
When a mending from a heart that breaks...
To not again repeat mistakes.

Romanticizing life...
Diminishes!
When a storm comes to rock one's house.
And the bottom seems to fall right out.

Romanticizing life...
Quickly finishes!
When a stinging of a meaning is felt.
And no one else is there to blame...
But oneself.

Healing from an ache is a big deal.
And doing what it takes is a big deal,
When skipping over hurdles to maneuver...
Is done with a doing to prove,
Clouds to face can be removed...
With a doing done one can prove.
Clouds to face can be removed...
With a doing done one can prove.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
