Random Poem:

Journey to the Top

He laid in the murky waters of his choices
and knew the sun would ever shine
on some other shore.
He could not  gather the swollen,
misshapen pieces of his life
and make them whole again.
Everyday faced him with a wicked
smile and sly glint and he knew
once more the frosty chill of defeat;
for he was bent under the moral spheres
he schemed to ignore on his ruthless
journey to the top.
