Tip toe through
Tireless peace
Come and go,
Leave your toys and sweets
When, if I had a place
You could visit me
Read fairy tales, play
Hide and go seek
Cliff faces are far too steep
Even though we try to
Smile through our teeth
This surface is not so deep
Although we have our
Secrets to keep
Tightropes are seldom
Too weak
Say I’ve lost my shoes or
I have cold feet
Say stranger how did we meet
And who will hear us
When we start to speak
Our shadows are still
Out on the street
My skin is still as
White as a sheet
Our time is short and fleet
Empty pockets, trick or treat
We all need food to eat
Friend or foe we all go to sleep
Life away from home is
Far from cheap
So look long now before you leap
So soldier please have a seat
You’re only alive while
Your own heart beats
There will always be
Wolves among the sheep
But what’s left of the
Earth will be ploughed
By the meek

Ploughed by the meek

    General CommentI love this but not sure what it all means. Maybe depicting life through the eyes of a child and saying we could benefit from hanging onto some of our child like qualities as we grow up.
