The History of Rome, Books 1-5: The Early History of Rome by LivyLivy (c. 59 BC-AD 17) dedicated most of his life to writing some 142 volumes of history, the first five of which comprise The Early History of Rome. With stylistic brilliance, he chronicles nearly 400 years of history, from the founding of Rome (traditionally dated to 757 BC) to the Gallic invasion in 386 BC - an era which witnessed the reign of seven kings, the establishment of the Republic, civil strife and brutal conflict. Bringing compelling characters to life, and re-presenting familiar tales - including the tragedy of Coriolanus and the story of Romulus and Remus - The Early History is a truly epic work, and a passionate warning that Rome should learn from its history.
Poems For When Life Is Just Hard
Next Poem. Trapped by four corners of glass, Striving for the upper class. No windows, no doors. Caught in the midst of a dream. Floating or yet just as it seems, An idea lingers across your mind But diminishes as soon as you find. You've almost made it, But you're stuck on the same page As everyone around.

Such poems help people to see they are not alone in their struggles and that it is possible to overcome their problems.
Words that make us feel heard and understood, that acknowledge our pain and how heavy life can feel. And sometimes we also need to get put back together again; to be reminded of the ways we can get through this, how we have overcome, and how, despite it all, life gives us hope. Let this collection of poems about life help you feel heard, comforted, and give voice to whatever hurts or heals right now. I walk in the dark and trip and fall and get up and step blindly on the mute stones and dry leaves and someone behind me is also walking: if I stop, he stops; if I run, he runs. I turn around: no one. Everything is black, there is no exit, and I turn and turn corners that always lead to the street where no one waits for me, no one follows, where I follow a man who trips and gets up and says when he sees me: no one.

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away; Lengthen night and shorten day; Every leaf speaks bliss to me Fluttering from the autumn tree. From Katherine Towers' The Remedies. Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store? Where are the songs of spring? So slow a fading out brings no real pain. Breath growing short Is just uncomfortable.
