Treasure Island

amanda awan

(2 January,1998 / Los Angeles, LA)

A battlefield


time's running out
the end is near
we have to keep trying
no need to fear

the finish lines away
but you can feel it close
cross it hurry
then we can make a toast

my legs are tired
my feet are sore
i can't make it
i can't run anymore

but i know from each step
i believe i can
and if i can't
i can try again

life's a battlefield
we can't go with what we choose
but we should keep trying
cause what do you have to lose?

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
