Treasure Island

Jeff Rushton


Astronomy


Look in your eyes...
Through the fog in your eyes, the smog that covers your cries.
Through the tears of the lives, the lives you comprise.
Look in your eyes...
I see a life of broken ties, a life of unexpected lies,
I see a person disenchanted with physical and social replies.
Look in your eyes...
I see the scars you've become accustom to hide,
I see the passion to run and to hide.
Look in your eyes...
I see the fear of failure and compromise,
I see the pain that you let crush your life.
Look Beyond your eyes...
I see the beginning of a new life, a life of veracity and skies,
I see the birth of a child innocent in all eyes.
Look beyond your eyes...
I see the fun and happiness that keeps you alive,
I see the joy and passion for life.
Look beyond your eyes...
I see the love that is buried inside,
I see the sparkle that makes life a surprise.
LOOK, LOOK, LOOK...
It is all within your eyes.
It stands out to those that have lived through the lies, the sorrows, the pains and the terrible ties. This is not to fear or despise, it is to revere and to take in stride. For those that know can see as clear as the summers sky. The potential to be great is all within your eyes. You are one that can make it if you try. Many have the sparkle but few have the radiation to shine, to burn the smog and fog that keeps you behind.

I love to look into your eyes, for therein lies the reason I am alive. I have fought the fight and with the site of your plight I am determined and recharged with energy and light. It is time to burn and to refine,
For therein lies the new beginning of a star that
WILL SHINE.

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.
