Written: By Tom Wright
To the mind that’s choked as a stagnant pool
With algae covering its simplest thought.
Departed is the recall of this magnificent tool
Absent is the passion for life once sought.
Deadpan eyes meet those ensconced with pain
Seeking much patience and understanding;
From the life that was, let the memories remain
Sometimes life seems cruel and demanding.
