The Rose

Poem By Franklin J. Warren

What life giveth, can be taken away
Only a strong will can sometimes make stay.
The pleasures you work so hard to acquire,
The good times you have to admire
As all this can easily be removed
With the blinking of an eye.

Life is good, and giving you all
that you desire, then you take your eye off the ball
Washed away through selfs own doing
In an idleness which one keeps accruing
All of this can easily removed
With the blinking of an eye.

So my words come from my own misgiving
Heading myself, knowing is forgiving
But smile my friends. All that was gained can be lost
And all that lost can be regained
With the blinking of an eye.

A girl I once knew of beauties born,
But poison was she, and full of scorn.
The heart was right and depth within
But shallowness was all that shone.

Sweet Poetry!

To read a poem bares their soul,
O' love, o' hatred, o'death, o' thought,
It's within the words in which we are taught,
In these readings I become nigh owl.

Soul To Take

Not friends have I, that I can bare my soul
Yet in these words I can allow
Why? Why don't I have people to confide?
I used to, perhaps it's my pride.

Life's Undulations

The undulations of life find me sitting here,
Like hills in the peaks, rolling on until the end.
For now I'm alone, sad and full of un-cheer,
But, a light, my thoughts offer to lend

Poetic Justice!

What life giveth, can be taken away
Only a strong will can sometimes make stay.
The pleasures you work so hard to acquire,
The good times you have to admire
