Treasure Island

Sharron Stephenson

A Cry for Peace

Why should we face times alone when they,
Are there not the way, we wish,
Lies and truth can take the place,
Of love and happiness,
When two people who come together must,
Try to cope and sometimes fail,
The family can grow when babies take,
Over and cry for reasons,
On which can be hard to deal with,
Friends we have be the ones we,
Turn to for support and advice,
No-one knows what the future holds,
As for some they can learn the lessons,
The hard and the wrong way,
Everyone has a past,
Which can haunt our present and the,
Way we live,
The force of the problems can hit,
Like crash of thunder,
The timing can be so,
To the point where we can be hurt,
It can also make us realise that the,
That the world we live,
Is not the peaceful place we,
Hoped it was,
Try to remember the place in your mind,
Where nothing could hurt you,
At the end of the tunnel there will be a light,
That shines bright and is waiting for you,
To understand,
That we are only human and we all,
Can love and be loved,
For who we are

    There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Always the beauty of nature and always someone to lift your spirits with a smile or someone who needs you to lift their spirts with ever a Bigger smile. And this is a beautiful feeling to give. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
