Treasure Island

James Darwin Smith II

(10/6/74 / San Diego, CA)

From This I Must Always Fight to Win

When tides form from the ocean
As poetry becomes motion
I try to believe in miracles
As I try to live in my own peace

Yet, I become too cynical
Negative words becoming subliminal
As no one understands the way I truly feel

When tides fall out
And sand grows life
My memories grow inside
Trying to destroy them with all my might

As poetry becomes emotion
My heart becomes an ocean
I try to give out my true identity...

Of who I am
From words within
I write my own battles
I write in my own will
From this I must always fight to win

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.
