Treasure Island

Aldo Kraas

(July 15 1964 / Sao Paulo Brazil)


I was born 47 years ago
And I have 30 years to live stil
I am geting old every year
And soom I will catch up with you my friend
But my friend you are at the end of your life
And I have 30 years to live still
But I am no ina rush to end my life
Because I still have a life ahead of me
And I try to get the most out of my life
Also my home is my paradise and sanctuary
And I am the ruler of my home
But my destiny I am not sure where it begins and ends

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
