Treasure Island

Amin Ilelah


As a child I was
Unable to believe in something
Now a young man
't's impossible to believe in nothing
Every love lost
Begun with full optimism
't's good to have lost love had
Though the experience may seem terrible.

As a child I was
Unable to believe in death
Now a young man
't's impossible to believe in life
Every life snuffs out
Start swerve n witty
't's good to have lived n die
Then you will have reminiscence in heaven.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
