We

A Poem By The Brit // 9/3/2012

We weep and wail.
We gnash our teeth.
We loose our way and stumble.
We cry and scream.
We shout and yell.
We whisper and we grumble.
We blink, we rub.
We look for light.
We gouge our eyes to clear them.
We yawn and gape.
We pause and listen.
We try and fail to hear them.
We think and think.
We pause and ponder.
We try to understand it.
We plead and beg.
We give and take.
We order and demand it.
We love and hate.
We laugh and growl.
We promise and believe it.
We come to earth.
We live our life.
We see the world, then leave it.

We live.

This was really good. The rhythm was absolutely perfect. (!!!) I can't stress that enough. The words you chose to rhyme did so perfectly. So, good job.

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

Ha, I just got to reading this...

What a brilliant description of life!

We see the world, then leave it. (my fav bit.) (actually, second thoughts. I can't decide which bit is my favourite.)

Goodbye? Oh no, please. Can’t we just go back to page one and start all over again?” – Winnie The Pooh
