Look Beyond The Surface
Author: Pamela O'Brien


Every minute is a chance,
Time knows no compassion.
I cannot feel the rain!
Turn around and defy,
Around and defy the world,
Or accept challenge smiling.
Write kind of wrong sometimes....
My heart bleeds for life,
Thoughts are escape,
You cannot see the rain!
Are there others like me?
Secretly we fear ourselves,
Behind the future is the future's past.

------- Author's Notes -------

Just curious as to whether anyone has figured it out yet - its not too hard or anything, but I just thought I'd ask anyways :O)

Oh, Come On!

Seriously, as stupid as it may seem I really want somebody to figure this out because its kind of neat and I think every poet will be able to relate to it (if they've ever lost a loved one)
