"A ship is safe in a harbour, but that is not where a ship is meant to stay"


Tear tracks written in stone on my face,
Feet ache from many too many steps,
My collar turned up against the wind.
But walking here,
On this twinkling summer night,
I know everything's gonna be alright.

My mind stopped thinking,
And my feet stopped chasing,
And my heart stopped loving,
A while ago.
But standing here,
In this warm summer rain,
I know everything's gonna turn out right.

My smile ain't real no more,
My fear ain't fake.
And you ain't around,
To tell me it's alright.
Yet I think to myself,
It's a beautiful night,
And I know,
That everything's gonna be alright.

THis is really good too! I love your writing style! What i would do though, in that last stanza- i would change the first alright to something else because it seems a little too rhyme-y since you rhymed that twice.... you really don't have to though, it is still an awesome poem. Would you mind reading some of my stuff? I'm glad i came across you as a writer because i'm very fond of your work!! :) i would appreciate it if you would tell me what you think about mine!
