Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Like Icarus
Icarus Pictures, Images and Photos

It is said he flew too close to the Sun
and his wings of wax and feathers were no more

His dreams of freedom short lived, common
to our own

Pressed to fly where we could not, short lived

Anger has become the better part of me today
no longer a child of GOD, no longer what
once was a better man

Self imposed exile sometimes seems the
better of all things, can't soar anymore

Superman died today and so did his dreams

Write or think what you want
We already know our net worth

A penny for your thoughts, I gave away
mine for free

Sometimes that's not such a good idea

Time to hunker down Winter
is fast approaching and it's getting
cold, the funny thing is we're
still in August

Priorities need to be addressed
Today we begin with our own

Let myself go over the years
it's been a very long time
don't seem to know me anymore

Today we'll try to figure us out
