Treasure Island

Don Nguyen


A Sincere Pleading


Just tell me plainly as you always do
then i will pack my knapsack and go
my own way, leave all our good and sad memories behind
sometimes old friends do part
visiting them, I thought i had made a new start
but you found me and you dragged me back here
why, to torture me some more or cage the bird in me to sing
a sad love song forever becuase he is guilty of love and being childish?
let me go or bear with my open loving heart
who tries to help all his brethren poets
learning how to love and to live
then to beleive that each human being has a value
not to be looked down or discarded
but to be loved and respected

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.
