measure

| April 28th, 2007

what is the measure of a man
how to sum up a life
in so few words
ambitions lived, denied
opportunies left
on the side of the road
too busy to notice
the blur of memory passing by

indistinct and so small
a speck in a greater light
trying to burn bright enough
to make a little shade
to lie down
and rest within
beneath the wisest tree
and draw all in
lose oneself
within the pulse
drift away

please leave a reply
