Treasure Island

Aaron Lynn

Confidence


When my pleasant dream erodes.

And every heart has turned to stone.

My shout turned whisper is then drowned.

In the aimless, screaming crowd.

Now, I know you say I'm welcome.

But I feel as if I shouldn't stay.

For our gears do turn in contrast.

With no one else but us to blame.

Confidence is not inherent.

Nor as stable as it seems.

It's a treasure for the strong.

A fragile dream-tease for the weak.

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
