Treasure Island

6 years 1 month 5 days


6 years 1 month 5 days
of war
of failed goverment
of lost economy

6 years 1 month 5 days
of family members still lost
of futures still being shattered
of cancer among heros
of money, before memorials

6 years 1 month 5 days
when a president stood on a hill of rubble and promised justice
of the ememy who still is alive
the soilders who come home missing not only limbs but souls

6 years 1 month 5 days
of being afraid
of waiting for the next attack
of knowing that when it happens 1,000,00 will die

6 years 1 month 5 days
think back to what happened
and never forget
6 years 1 month 5 days
MORE THAN NUMBERS

Poem of the Day

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
