This night comes down in slow degrees


All untimely questions will arise

It will ruffle the temper of many

To sour my thoughts

And spoil my vision

With one foot on a banana peel

The other in my mouth

As the sad song of the lonely bird

Will sing along with me

Happy tunes there will never be

Casting your blazing eyes at me

As the night come down on me


We can never be

That's because you used to be a gymnist. How else could you have one foot in your mouth, while slipping on a banana? Do you remember what your coach used to say to you when you fell? That still applies. ~ Sara

Dear Tinka,

NEVER say never, everything can be if you are just positive and work towards a goal. Don't let insignificant little issues break you down. Be positive and make it REAL....
