Caprices Of Fortune

Why should I blush that Fortune's frown
Dooms me life's humble paths to tread?
To live unheeded, and unknown?
To sink forgotten to the dead?
'Tis not the good, the wise, the brave,
That surest shine, or highest rise;
The feather sports upon the wave,
The pearl in ocean's cavern lies.
Each lesser star that studs the sphere
Sparkles with undiminish'd light:
Dark and eclips'd alone appear
The lord of day, the queen of night.

very good write, thanks. I invite you to read my poems and comment.
Whatever have written on us, we can rearranged the destiny...as He said likely like this, He never let (someone) changed as we dont want to change...Be like a firework, even life just once, let we burst all the best one time with glittering glory in darkest space...and beautiful still ours! Burst it out even just once and gone_Soul
