Treasure Island

Anders Lim

A Place For My Head

Beneath my spirit
Rocks of hate
Trapped in the endless deception of fate

Stone of truth
Broken by lies
The fissures cracked in repeating cries

Here I lie
Weak and frail
Yelled for help but to no avail

Help I seek
Yet cannot find
Chain the demon that twists my mind

Seeking the light
Seeking the spark
Seeking the freedom from a place this dark

My heart cut open
Continuously bled
Can’t I find a place for my head

    The phenomenon of recklessness is well negated in this poem with a very vigilant approach of self-reliance and self-valuation after happenings from the insolent society....

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
