Treasure Island

Maya Robena


Blind to Reality


I see the world,
Through tired eyes,
I see the world,
Not the way it is,
Where there is much pain,
My eyes see beauty,
When there is blood,
Aged red wine,
Where there is anger,
My eyes see love,
When there is destruction,
Carefree work of an artist,
Nothing wrong,
Not a problem,
I am the source,
Of the worlds greatest problems,
Ignorance is bliss,
Only to the ignorant,
The world is not perfect,
The world is not pure,
Wake up,
Open your eyes.

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,
