Treasure Island

William Montgomery

Everlasting emotions

I put on a mask to try and forget my past

But i am taking it of at last Every day i wish this feeling would go away

Emotions anger and sadness they both lead to madness

bottling things up inside trying to keep your dignity your pride

then one day you turn on the tv and see the corpse of your bride

suddenly your feelings you can no longer hide

you, ll never admit to any one that you cried

but you see this pain just isint going away

so i decide to leave earth this day

the knife cuts deep but i don't weep scream or say a peep

i just enter an everlasting sleep....

But then iam awakened confused and shaken

I see people in white the lights so bright

I have failed if only i had prevailed

Years pass and the emotions remain

The cuts have turned to scars

And yet here i sit looking to the stars

No kid no wife

just alone under the night sky with a knife

This time there will be no mistake

After all what am i leaving behind

A fractured mind leaving a world that's blind

To the hate within the young to the bullets in their gun

We could change the world right now to a better place

Stop funding the nuclear arms race instead give money to the poor

Give every one a roof and a floor and a front door

A home to call their own instead of letting politicians sit on their throne

All they ever do is bitch and moan then take yet another loan

To bail out the banks and buy weapons and tanks

Why put this money to waste we should be spending it feeding the world with haste

ive been in counseling for years gave up taking drugs and drinking beers

but iam still battling with my fears and still shed tears but i think i can finally be my self and put my mask back on its shelf.

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.
