Kiplings Road

Updated on November 23, 2012

Keep you're head together
Whilst all around are losing theirs
Precious words from a great man
For a soul who always dares

To wear his heart on his sleeve
Who gives to much too soon
Confessing you've become his sun
And he's became you moon

To fill one unforgiving minute...sixty seconds of hearfelt run
To write these words just for you
Risking all with pitch and toss
To see what you will do

I've dealt with lies
And built my life
With broken worn out tools

So speak the truth
And don't build traps
You're no knave
And I'm not a fool

      I like your reference to Rudyard Kipling's lines and am a fan of his far a long time. Thank you for your sharing, whonu
