"If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking." - George S. Patton

O' when the day falls near the ends of the earth,
All is silent in padded squares of grey.
For many stand alone on yonder towers,
Watching, wating for blemish to be made.
But none is struck at the hour of three.
So sleep is imminient for the night's watchmen,
Hoping that dawn's face will stay clean as can be.
For another day will hold another night,
And a chance for walls to be breached.

I agree with the chocolateharp, the poem has a real "snacher" as I like to call it. Keep it up! (:

"Dear God," she prayed, "let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. Let me be hungry...have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well dressed. Let me be sincere - be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. Let me be honorable and let me sin. Only let me be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost." - Betty Smith (A Tree Grows in Brooklyn)

I love this! You drew me in right at the first line- great job!
