Happy New Year (standard:poetry, 118 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Jan 20 2010Views/Reads: 1656/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Guessing what the future will bring and how well I can adapt to changes... what if I can't multi-task?

Flooded gates Of years gone past Have left a score Of those aghast In
harbor shores I trim my sail But I decide I cannot whale 

I cannot go The ocean vast Of many seas We may not last Ahead and lee
Direct my path Move forward hence And not look back 

Again I try To bear the deck But seas oppose About my neck Have taken
breath And life from me And cast it to a lifeless sea 

And whose domain Will never roar But quiet then And hear no more 

A litany Of streaming years Will never quench The crowd that jeers But
time will come When oceans take The sea of us And will forsake
