Treasure Island

Fadhy Mtanga

(14-11 / Dar es Salaam, Tanzania)

a true friend


Knows when your face is dirty,
And dare to tell you the truth,
And helps you to make it.

Knows better your weakness,
And dare to tell you the truth,
And helps you to overcome it.

Knows when you are wrong,
And dare to tell you the truth,
And helps you to be right.

Knows better when you're falling,
And dare to tell you the truth,
And helps you where to lean on.

Knows when you are in needy,
And dare to tell you the truth,
And helps you to hold your hand.

Knows better when you are happy,
And dare to tell you the truth,
And helps you to share it.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
