Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

Are We There Yet


Are we there yet; where we long to be
The ship can only ferry us across the Nile
The mile in-between is ours to do
the walking to where we long to be

Are we there yet; where we long to be
Across the blue where the sky ties
faded blue ribbons across a flawless white
And the rainbow appears in the distance

Are we there yet; where we long to be
Across the land in the distance we see
Where the sun smiles in the face of the lake
And children take a dip with bubbles of laughter


We left our farmlands to search for a new world; here we are
thousand of miles from our home still we're not there yet

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
