High Score

High Score short poem

Pride and joy
But don’t toy with nature
Conserve the future

Sweet and sour
Change by the hour
The two sides of life
Of trouble and strife

Beg, steal or borrow
You’ll still pay with sorrow
Tomorrow never knows
And very seldom shows

You put the price of freedom
As high as birds can soar
But that will soon be out of reach
And this you can’t ignore

There’s little you can do
But rewrite the score

If they touch you in any way, if you are able to take something from them, then my work has achieved its goal and I am a happy man.Welcome to my world. Darren.
