Treasure Island

Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

Beautiful Lie


My beautiful lie
Bright and incandescent like the stars
And just as unattainable
Will you lead me through darkness?
Or will you dim before the pitch?
Alluring all, my beautiful deceit
Your voice is lovely
The song just as sweet
But will I fall if I jump?
Or will I touch the sky?
My beautiful lie
Do your words ring true?
Or will I hurt myself again?

    Even as the falcon streaches her wings for the first time to flight, no hesitation for what lay beyond,
    nature's gift... to soar. You must not fear the truth, nor believe in lies you tell yourself. You are Beautiful, inside and out. Fear not hurt, nor shy away from pain... this is how we know we are alive. Another Beautiful Write.; -)

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.
