Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

Everything Is Different


The past was experienced differently by everyone,
talking about it led to the discovery we all went back
and changed our memories of our various pasts also
so communication about shared events becomes
impossible, everything is different once again

Expressing my opinion led straight to a controversial
reference point in the splitting of our universes, maybe
following the same rules in adapting memories to suit
present ease would make it easier to enjoy a family
reunion, but I do not want to let go of my own

Version as it contains my observation, reflection and
all the lessons which make it possible to change my
behaviour to obtain different results, the best policy
is to accept that everyone has a right to their unique
opinion, fights only ensue when we pursue

Our own truth in conflict with that of another – and
give up on communication, a much overrated
activity, at any rate…

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
