Treasure Island

Everything Except Nothing


I am tired of running
Running away from Everything
Everything except nothing
I run away from my Hopes and Dreams
Only because I am afraid of having them crash down on me
It would hurt so bad
Just to get off the ground will cause scars
It hurt like hell when I fell on my ass
Bruises are seen everywhere
That is why I run
I run until I am out of breath
Sweat dropping from my eyebrows
Now knowing where I am
Or where I will end up
Not even a little bravery inside of me
Just all fear
Fear of all the hurt and pain in my life
So I just run
Run
Run
Run Away
From Everything except Nothing

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
