Treasure Island

Alberto Neri


An Internal Escape


Stranded a home that's broken, and a relationship that has no faith.
Creating a fear of expressing a voice of silent emotion.
Formulating a mental state unavailable to the surrounding.
An aimless and empty soul developed by an absence of care.
Ignoring the wimph & reasoning of a clueless society.
The only cure to substand an environment like this is the same that we're told to distance ourselves from.
But, what's the point in continuing a crooked cycle.
Especially when the life you live is falsely advertised by the ones who lead us.

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.
