Tomb of Writ

There is a tomb of writ
Near the heart of all
It dictates the champions
And those doomed to fall

Some there are that feel it
And recoil from itís touch
Some can stand to watch it
Though they need a crutch

There are no tears to shed
Laughter rings in the mount
There are smiles on the faces
As the time we do account

There are secrets on these pages
Of which no man will speak
Itís a record of fools
Of the strength of the weak

Itís a record of living
And of secrets thus expressed
Melancholy happiness
Of a life too richly blest

And even sometimes
The unchecked joy
Of a running child
Overcomes the pensive boy

Here is my crutch
For you to hold
All the little secrets
You were never told


My melancholy is purely my own

wow!!! That intro-stanza was amazing! I loved how you started it out and everything flowed nicely. (Library)

So together but so broken inside

Nicely written, i really enjoyed reading this!

With God I am happy; sadness has no say in my life.
