Treasure Island

Rita Umali


Chasing Dreams


when I was a child
I used to chase dreams
dreams so hard to get
I thought life rest
on dreams achieved
so many struggles
I’ve gone through
chasing dreams

I cried
sometimes with tears
as the heart slowly hardens
stone cold I face reality
dreams are not for me

yet last night
I saw you
and what a beautiful person
you are
I never expected such thing
that dreams may still come true

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
