Treasure Island

Lyn Paul



The older I am getting,
The younger I am becoming.
All of those worries, What were they for?
They only caused heartache and opened, ....not one, ... door.
Friends met along the way...
Some still with me. Some chose not to stay.
Looking at pictures. ' Hey I looked pretty good back then'
Yet now, The personality is just getting bigger,
And.. I am NOW, almost the perfect '10'
Cause... I look pretty good and know how to smile,
I can do many things and believe I have style.
So that's all you have to do. Believe in Who you are
None of us are perfect and we all have something to give...
A gift for others makes you want to live.
Remember, Just how far, your smile can go
What it gives to others..... A seed waiting to grow.

    very scholarly written, and that too as if by the hands of a physician who is confident about the cure he suggests...good lively beginning, and a strong poem over all...yet i believe yesterday is NOT ALWAYS forgotten! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Well penned Lyn, we waste a lot of energy worrying about things which really are not all that important. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
