Inward Thoughts On A Troubled Day

Light dances with the idea of love 
the sharks circle at mere plight 
of weakness but you cant kick out
a ballerina tiptoeing across rivers
red flowing with contemplation
and the final twin feather bed calling

Tomorrow's successes seduce
the captain's chair  empty
he's gone out for air
backed up pickup but the limbs won't move
just need another reason for loving you

The walls are built by more than just an emperor
The chains are laced in verse of discrimination
but I'm building a bridge to you
just don't jump and leave us to clean up behind
and as the cock crows it's going to be alright

I'm just going to build a bridge one hand at a time.

A most poignant piece Tim your words bring a calm breeze to ease struggles, to feel we are not alone and to know "it's going to be alright'. What a great line that is, so simple yet so true.:-) The video is a great choice. Excellent writing my friend :-) blessings, lynn
