Treasure Island

irisa salkic

(berlin, germany)


Trying to survive life
Dealing with all the strife
Yet people continue putting me down
Laughing at me like I'm some clown

Making me feel like the enemy
So I try to see if there's a remedy
To find a cure
To see what's wrong with me

But I never do
So why am I always at fault?
Making me feel like I've committed an assault.
What is missing?

Is it that I'm not listening?
I'm so confused
Always feeling misused
In the past, being abused.

Why can't people just let me be?
Can't anyone see I try my best?
Why do I feel like I'm being put to the test?
There's only so much I can take.

So please, let me know
What was my mistake! ?
Am I really the enemy?
Just because I'm not how others want me to be?

But honestly
I've come to realize
Under our disguise
We're our own worst enemy.

And that's how it's come to be.
So think twice before you judge me.
What you see now is nothing compared to what I am to be.
Cuz I hold the key
And you will see.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
