Each Night I Go to Bed

each night I go to bed
a little bit later
I wake up in the morning
forgetting the past

days add up like coins in my pocket
I’m rich with hours
another little bit has passed

I find another hobby
swear to myself I’ll get healthy
another little bit has passed

I think about the news
write about my views
another little bit has passed

when will this world come to an end?
it seems so eternal right now

    i love potery i even write some of my own
    here is one of my poems it is called red rose
    Red Rose
    Red the color of love
    Rose a sweet smelling flower
    What dose this red rose mean to u?
    Is it the summer’s collection?
    The winter’s foe?
    The spring’s friend?
    Or a simple smile in a book?
    What dose this rose mean to you?
