Treasure Island

Nate Hawk

(England)

And Yet,


I see the world, yet I am blind
I hear the wind, yet trees stand still
I taste the water, yet drink the wine
I feel no pain, yet swallow the pill

I lay in bed still, yet am awake
I read the words, yet forget their meaning
I aim to give, yet succeed to take
I watch the stars, but see not they're gleaming

I strive to finish, yet fail to begin
I hate to love, yet love to hate
I'm happy to lose, yet scared to win
I control my destiny, yet resign to fate

I wish to live, yet think to die
I want to learn, yet stand to preach
I know the answer, yet still ask 'why? '
I need anyone's help, yet refuse all that would reach

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
