Durable - By Kaiit

Durable

As I look down at the past,
I look up at what is yet to come.
This change is for the better,
this change is while I'm young.
Good change is taking its time,
good change has just begun.
Even if the desire was there,
I can't go back now.
what's done - is done.
Now is not the time for nostalgia
Now is not the time to focus on what went wrong.
Darling, please come along..
walk with stride
pick up your pride.
Get on track before your depression comes back.
Stop dreaming, this is reality.
Life's testing your durability
do you feel the resistance?
do you feel anything at all?
I wouldn't say you're broken, I would say you're ready to fall.
Beyond numb to the core sweet nothingness.
Look into my eyes, do you see something more?
these eyes,
these eyes have been through hell, don't be surprised.

ICE - By Richard Thomas

ICE

It soothes my sores
And cools my drinks
And makes the floors
For skating rinks.
It floats in punch
In cubic form.
It's fun to crunch
When I feel warm.
It's great for sleds
And pucks and falls
And penguin beds
And igloo walls.
On frigid days
 It's hail or sleet
Or frozen glaze
That coats our street.
It forms the flakes
In snow that drops.
It's crust on lakes
Or puddletops.
It's bergs adrift
On northern seas.
It's nature's gift
Adorning trees.
A hanging spear
From roof or wire.
It's crystal clear
And gleams like fire.

PRAISING PIZZA - By Richard Thomas

PRAISING PIZZA

They call it pie, but sweet it's not.
And "pizza" means exactly what?
By any name, when it's served hot,
A palate-pleaser's what you've got.

Ignore existing recipes.
To dough, tomato sauce and cheese
Add any toppings that you please
From orchards, gardens, fields and seas.

Begin with veggies, ripe and raw,
Then olives, mushrooms, fruit and slaw.
Add lots of extra cheese to gnaw
And scatter truffles over all.

Then to this scrumptious-looking mess
(A monument to wholesomeness).
Add pepperoni please, unless,
A vegan lifestyle you profess.

Next, top it off with caviar
And, though it sounds a bit bizarre,
Add chocolate, and there you are:
A feast for rajah, queen or czar.

Nutritious, tempting and complete--
It's all a person needs to eat.
No known cuisine can hope to beat
This cheap, beloved and tasty treat.
