A Poem by Percy Pound

What are you going to do?

I'll do all that I can...
But i'm only a man.
What can I do?
I'm subject to the ways of the many
And so hopeless as an individual.
But yeah, wouldn't it be wonderful?
If I guy like me 
Could go and fly free
And save the day like in all the stories?

Stop saying "only"
You're more than that.
You can't just give up 
At the drop of a hat.
Hunker down and toughen up
Or else life'll treat you like a small, newborn pup.
You're not the runt, 
and I know you feel as if you got the brunt
But please don't give up like I did

But what if I fail
And you're not there?
How will I fare, tonight?
Help me, stay with me,
I don't want to be alone in all this strife
Help me fight this awful blight.

I'll stay, but you're out of your mind
What'll you do when you have to go against the grind?
I won't always be here, and you know you'll 
Have to face all those fears. 

Then i'll repay you,
I see you through. 
I'll become strong enough to protect what I hold dear
And be able to face all of our fears. 
It might take some time, i'm not that strong.
But i'll do it for you.

HI. This is awkward; you found my profile... So...I enjoy writing, and I will admit that I like to write a lot of poetry. I might also be writing a novel... okay bye, or stay, if you want. Haha. T.. more..
