The Fence
Author: Shan


Suddenly it makes sense
I see all clear
On both sides of the fence
So tough through all these years
To hold in so much thought
So much wonder
So much hurt
Makes you hold on what you've got
What you've to ponder
What you've spurt
Relate from within the shoes
Contemplate the size and choose
Remember change of fate
And raise an eye on every view
The greener grass
It has no side
The scene, at last will show
It's been a battle of the past
It's time now
It's time to let it go

Although harder said than done sometimes, I believe it's those "harder things to do" that continue us to grow and learn and become... well, whoever we'll be after.
