Letters in a box


Tired of hearing;
The names I've been called.
Tired of baggage;
That I've had to haul.
Bunched up in circles;
Living in ruts.
The hostile’s aren't coming;
but we're still breathing dust

Once I captured a monarch;
That was floating by me.
Now I can't stop the bleeding;
and I hope no one see's
The foolish the jokers;  
Myself as the worst.
Now treading through seasons;
In a life that seems cursed.

    Hi Leonard, this is a thought provoking piece. Love it! Has a gypsy feeling in the first verse, but the second has a melancholy air. Wishing you the best! Mikki
