Treasure Island

Anna Travers


Everywhere i go
i see the things i already know
no new seeds to sow
where is all the new information
I want to feed my brain
i am hungry for wisdom
but everywhere i go
I see things i already know

Everywhere i tread
I hear things already said
Help i am going brain dead
I crave new conversation
I listen for strange logic
I dismiss Idle talk
But Everywhere i go
I hear things i already know

Everywhere i look
i see things i see in the book
that cannot be mistook
the truths we are fed
the pictures we are shown
the words that are read
But Everywhere i look
I see things i see in the book

Time to feed my brain
before i go insane
need to escape a life mundane
no more television
no more red top papers
just pure wisdom from the wise
because its time to feed this brain
NOT go insane

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
