Treasure Island

Udaya R. Tennakoon


A Parody


Wakeful night
Turning the chapters of life
Recall and dig
To beach the net of past

Within everything
Most of things
Value is nothing

A long time
In a short time
Gives a parody
That never can be corrected

Lesson learnt
And time passed
Thinking of past
Creation of tomorrow
Grim and mock
For the balance of the life

    Ah, yes, the experience of pain to truly understand relief. Only to embrace life's grip along with death's caress. I like the theme of this piece =) (Report) Reply
