Treasure Island

STANLEY PACION

(Chicago, Illinois USA)

Bad Girl


Her disease, it said,
'Dark around and within,
But outside, far outside, it's all light.'

It said,
'I'm a beggar,
My richness, my excitement, my genital,
All that shines outside,
I am empty.'

    Like a bulb, without wires...we can be dark in the dark, light when there is light...the transparent bulb does nothing but followed as it received from what have surround, if all wires connected (the self completing self) with the power on we may bright maybe not as bright as the sun outside but we could compete to be bright as our own, and brighter when it is in the dark...a bad girl, bad boy....when they can connect the wires of real life and ON the mind, they can be a light within from their heart..just dont deny it_Soul (Report) Reply
