Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Confident In Being


Missing out on many activities in daily life, preferring instead to sit and write from imagination.
Taking myself on visits to outer space and beyond, then returning and leaving for points in inner space, reserved for only me.
Confident in my being, satisfied with life as I am living it today.
Leaving others out of my boundaries, preferring not to be hurt by their insensitive remarks and comments.
Always taking me apart, never wanting to accept me as I am in whole.
Losing out on many conversations, joys, and close friendship with me, preferring rumor and gossip instead.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
