Treasure Island

celia hinojosa

Aim, don't settle

Have I really lost my heart for real this time
where has all the romance in my heart gone
am I really done with the flaming passionate love rhymes
or is it just hiding underneath all my brutal pain

am I wishing on too many stars that are just really planes
am I done chasing dreams and just settled for nightmares
have I settled for pick up lines and the love cliche things
where has that spark in me gone to and will it come back

where has my ambition to fine the one gone to
who is this person that I'm becoming to hate
I look in the mirror and ask myself who the hell are you?
Because I know that settling for something is not love

I still have pride even after all I went through
I've faced my fears and faced the devil so near
I am more strong now and as a person I grew
and face death eye to eye if I had to

settling for something is not love and its not right
different from settling down with someone you love
don't settle down to the gravity when you got might
the might to aim for way above the stars and heaven too.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
