A History's Sorrow

December 27, 2010
Until too late the moment has fled, so
We weep the lack of courage;
Too afraid to approach, to say--
And before too long we've grown apart.
Old enough to know to regret
Fate's threads we cut;
Until dreams too hopeless to scramble for,
Shaking fingers too weak to reach
Suffocated by the mountain's ocean,
We twine and unravel
A history's sorrow.

This is good! I had to read this twice to get the full meaning. It's good as is, or you could always delve in and talk about previous events in history that have impacted today's society as well. Still though, Nice job :)
