Treasure Island

A Better Me


I strive to find a better me,
a person just and true.
I want to live and not just be,
to be decent through and through.

I need to be a stronger me,
both in body and in soul.
It's not a whim, it needs to be,
for me to feel whole.

I will be that better me,
and that better me will stay.
I will be better, they'll see,
it's time to seize the day!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
