Random Poem:

We Will Live Our Stories Sometime

We Will Live Our Stories Sometime
Under a roof with a hanging lamp two men told stories of a life with walls.
In the forest there were mysteries,
So they spent time together because they knew there were no questions between them
Playing cards were the chess pieces for dreams
Their hope was their will.
Former eggs, now old moths flock to the light and play,
Blind but knowing youth is around them,
For that’s their realized dream
The two men quiet down to stare at the moths,
Their grins turn into laughter and the moths die living.
