Treasure Island

Lee John Siebritz

(12 March 1985 / Cape Town)

Changes


From the gutter
To the pearly gates
We are all destined
To a brighter future

Sadly,
Not everyone is let in…
For those who make it
A true miracle occurs

Some abuse their fame
Others cherish their gifts from God

We are hear
By his mercy
Yet so many deny him

It is only when
His wrath is cast upon us
That we listen

Some learn via experience
Others don’t listen at all
It is only when we hurt
It is only when we experience pain

That we take heed
That we learn
That we realize
The path
That is destined for us.

The pot of gold is waiting to be claimed!

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
