Wake And Run (standard:poetry, 145 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Jan 11 2011Views/Reads: 1344/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
There's no escaping the daily grind...

Wake and run 

To meet the light 

Of day to find 

Beyond your sight 

Your work begins 

But with all might 

Come home to bed 

To stay the night 

Begin again 

A newborn day 

And round and round 

We cannot say 

In blindness where 

I'm heading to 

A ship without 

A rudder who 

Does circle 'bout 

With ghostly crew 

A zombie that 

I hardly knew 

Some selfish break 

That we might find 

Ourselves in part 

We've left behind 

Where did I go 

Along my climb 

Achieve my goals 

Were never mine 

But to events 

That never cease 

You must go on 

You've signed life's lease 

Another year 

Another ten 

Will find you old 

And grey but then 

The journey you 

Have taken end 

To come to rest 

Begin again 

To wake and run 

To meet the light 

Come home to bed 

To stay the night
