Decay a Graceful Riot


The heart is decaying in the attempt to seek,
But the question still remains ‘Where do I peek?’
Ah, until then when the man decides to riot
Will it ever cease the decay and the rust in my being?
Go with the drift of things they say,
Let the graceful winds and waves decide my way,
I will bow and accept the whatever end there may be
Will it ever be love? or will it only be a lonely destiny?

inspired by Robert Frost
