Why Not Love
Some are taken for granted..
some feelings are planted...
deep in the ground..
where no sound of profound love
is ever felt or heard...
What if the birds failed to sing?...
is that not their love to each other and to the world..
for what life brings?...
Why do people part...
is it really a new start ...
for humdrum ignorance, when one speaks not of love..
When some go looking in all the wrong places..
for new faces...
they should be making peace..
warmth and good graces
Canaries sing..and Starlings bring shame
You the drifter will never have name.
Will never sing with melodious ring..
With a tongue so black and eyes that sting.
