Treasure Island

Freedom


I wake up every morning wondering how my day will be like,
here as i write, and here as i lay
Here are a few things that i have to say

I wear my heart on my sleeve but it beats in my chest
Care for few, but forget about the rest
Ive told lies to get outta trouble
But its hard because i always mumble
Its hard to tell lies,
I fail but at least i try
I dont understand why, but its in my past
Wondering if today will be my last
Hoping for the worst, but recieving the best
Never seen it coming, better run like the rest
The best has its ups and downs
People stare at me like im the crimial to this town
I get stopped by the cops, looking for a killer
They believe it was me, but no, it was Mr. Miller
They take me to court, accuse me of the crime
Im sitting in this jail cell making this stuff rhyme
What can i say, I got nothing to lose and a lot to share
I wear my heart in my thoughts and it beats in thin air.

Poem of the Day

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,
