Joker’s Serenade (poem)

A wind repeats the mistakes that I made

So countlessly repeating maybe more

The waves of mishaps wearing on life’s shore

The shadows of a joker’s serenade

-

So funny how I rarely saw before

The thoughts of some improvement a charade

Here was the one I was upon parade

A clown a fool a jester gone to war

-

Yet looking back at all I wandered through

The scars and smiles my heart began to know

Mistake where but a part of grander play

-

Small marvels are the things which I would do

And in the lives of others they would grow

For here I stand still kissed by yesterday

Yesterday will always be with us. It's part of who we are today and was a necessary step in the journey. Nice, Martin!
