Be Not Juliet

But fiction you are, our Juliet, unborn,
mere humans find love so hard to portray, 
thus leading many to their death, astray,
fear not a Romeo is born each day.
Childless children be not to death forsworn. 
Why leave the bloom of youth in this dark way?                                  
To these false examples swear not, allay ...
these foolish gestures and stay unmourned.
What care true love for false sacrifice's knife 
or petal poisons made by perverse form,
live and brave the days with courage cajoled.
Oh, waylay the cowards path, leave your grief,
for grief will come to all within life's storm;
live a full life linger for life is gold.

    Excellently penned Debbie! It's very true what you say about grief - it sure is to befall all and what we need to do is to embrace life and soldier on. You're still the best.

    Another nicely written example of this type of poem. If I want to see quality in poetry, all I have to do is see your work.
