Cripple Smiles

Cripple Smiles

A Poem by Breezie Kae

I can't reach far without toppling over.
I can't believe without a four-leaf clover.
I can't move on because I never began.
I can't take risks unless it's part of the plan.
I just can't choose;
it's just the thing that I couldn't do.

I can't get up out of bed today.
I cried the last five hours away.
I don't approve of my own lifestyle.
I fade away behind a cripple smile.
I just can't choose;
it's just the thing that I couldn't do -

I couldn't do.

I can't change, it feel too late,
because it's true that life won't wait for you.
So take this sunrise, feel so broken,
take a picture, so soft-spoken; it's true
that I can't do
this.

I can only see impossibilities.
I've thrown away my opportunities.
But maybe the sun will fizzle out and burn,
and these sequined words will shine in its return;
to follow through
and see what I can do.

"I can't change, it feel too late,

So many lines stood out in this poem. The above lines are true. Hard to get up and find purpose when goals and dreams are so far away. A excellent poem.
