Treasure Island

Born In The Bad World


Born into a world of hate,
Love forbidden, hidden fate.
Born into a world so cold,
Tattered, torn-
broken, alone.

Living In an ungrateful place,
I've never seen my fathers face,
I'm trying hard to make a stand,
Nobody even lends a hands.

Never do I live, I die,
Most people never truly cry,
Born into a world of grey,
Where love begins and ends in pain.

    The reality of the land, where the loneliness is thought to be a gift. Your poem is the answer to that immatured generation, which is going after money and lust.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
