Treasure Island

Follow Me


Woke up this morning with something on my mind
Wondering to myself why this world is so unkind
There are no jobs, so many turn to crime
Children growing alone, while their parents doing time

I’m not a preacher; I’m just saying how I see
Instead of having friends, we have a bunch of enemies
Let’s make a pledge, take a stand and do what’s right
So we could all be comfortable when we go to bed at night.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
