365 Poems: August 15th, 2014

Not Enough Pages

Infinite words bound together in infinite spiral–

I’m afraid that the world is not as simple as that

Because things fall apart

And the do more than most

With a shot, with a cry, with a laugh, with a boast

And life’s too short for pulling out sheets

And forgetting and losing your way

‘Cause this world only has one story

And you are a word of wonder

What this world needs–

Oh what does it not?

But now it needs pages

More stories to tell

More lives to be told

Without being cut short

Without ripping out hope

What this world needs–

What this world…
