Advantages & Compensation

We build memories
using the same resources
as when we build poems.
Poetry is not a privilege,
but forgetting is.


My nobility is simple

Dressing up every day to get to work
on a full time basis
followed by 2 hours on the bus
with a 2 hours ticket return
and even after all this,
still willing to continue
ahead.

  1. Wonderful! The poem line “Poetry is not a privilege” would be “Poetry is not a privilege, but it’s memories & emotions”. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
