Please, Give Me Some Direction by BrittonC

Piece by piece,
Cell by cell,
I am destroyed,

I lament for my childhood,
Years of wonder and innocence,
Destroyed by a world of cynicism,

My only dream is to dream,
To have a drive to achieve,
To have a purpose,

Minute by minute,
Second by second,
We are dragged towards our fate,

My greatest regret,
Would be having any regrets,
Hesitation is my only obstruction,

How do I start living,
If all I've ever known,
Is existing?

Clown in the Moon by Dylan Thomas

My tears are like the quiet drift
Of petals from some magic rose;
And all my grief flows from the rift
Of unremembered skies and snows.

I think, that if I touched the earth,
It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream.

Moi et la mer///Me and the sea by Gys

Moi et la mer !
Ai-je connu de meilleurs moments
Que ceux passés sur ce fin sable blanc
Allongée, à regarder en l’air,
Perdue dans mes pensées d’hier
Qu’aucun mouvement alentour
Ne peut détourner de l’amour
Qui m’enveloppe encore toute entière.
Dans la nuit qui commence maintenant à tomber
Je n’entends que les flots
Qui chassent mes sanglots
Avant de s’écraser sur ces nombreux rochers.
La mer ! Mon havre de paix
Qui de son écume lèche les plaies
Par son ressac, apaise mon cœur
L’ouvrant ainsi à ce bonheur.
Me and the sea!
Have I seen better times
Those made on that fine white sand
Lying to look upwards,
Lost in my thoughts from yesterday
No movement around
Can turn away from love
Who envelops me whole again.
In the night which now begins to fall
I only hear the waves
Dispelling my sobs
Before crashing into the many rocks.
The sea! My haven of peace
Which with its foam licks wounds
By its surf soothes my heart
opening that way to this happiness.
