Paper

Timothy Poetry Leave a Comment

Paper Take in my sorrow and my shame You, the knower of my deepest thoughts, Take in my failings name by name And share the burden of these blots.

Crying, Crying Little One

Dreamer By Timothy Berezhnoy Dreamer, feel the dirt Beneath your feet And do not think the air Will caress your cares away Get up, get up And till the tares away; The world isn’t waiting As you stand there Contemplating. It’s filled with doers, Workers, callused hands, Dreamers putting dreams to play
