Treasure Island

Day Dreamer


i am on a journey to where i dont know
as i start this journey dont know were to go
to start the journey i take one step
dont look back try to forget

take the bus or the train
help now its started to rain
walk the road to never forget
dont look back have no regrets

its the past that holds us back
should have left it before i packed
picture in my pocket ring on my hart
all these things holding me back

look out the window see a new life
walk the walk skate on thin ice
keep moveing on dont stop
still at the window no nearer my stop

this is a journey going nowhere
to many memories to carry there
keep on the road dont look back
all these memories in my backpack

stop at the crossroads where will i go
back to the past or god only knows
this is a journey taken from my chair
happy with my lot i am going nowhere

    I LOVE this poem John.We can travel ANYWHERE from the comfort of our armchair. Sometimes, we want to run away but it often takes more courage to stay.Day dreaming is a form of escapism and we all need to escape, even if only mentally sometimes.We have to have dreams to make them come true and I pray that all of yours will come true for you.I have given this lovely poem a 10 - I can identify with it!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
