Treasure Island

Andrea Ugona


Bear this in mind


coins are dropped
into the basket
everyone looks with solemn faces
to cover up their greed
wit their faces, they claim they don’t have money
this is all they have
but that’s not true
for the fact that u cum to dis building
everyday
wit a car or wit another form of transport
wit clothes dat proclaim
I m not cheap
Den dis is not all u have
D woman in d bible gave all she had though,
To the one and only
The person who deserved it
GOD
No one knows if she was blessed
For it was never sed
But HE says in HIS word
Dat Givers never lack
People, I dnt say this to rebuke u
But just to let u know
Dis is not what you give to the ONE
Dat gave HIS SON
Dat grants your every wish in HIS own time
… However though I wonder
And if this is blasphemy, I hope not
If each and every one were in GOD’S shoes
Would we accept that?
Because even the kings on earth rebuke those
That offer them so little a sacrifice
So please people, BEAR THIS IN MIND

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,
