Treasure Island


(10/18/1963 / Nigeria)


The certainty of the passage of time, periods, seasons add up to bring future,
The inevitability of what it will be, and what should be,
The progression of events that will aggregate to become expectancy of what would be,
The days and nights, the toils of daily labor, the dreams of what life should be,
The successes, the failures and the expectations,

The uncertainties, the meaning of why this, why that and why it is not what it is expected,
The unfolding events of passages of life with emotions that go along with them,
The barometer to compare what has been and what should have been,
The need to look beyond what you can control and what is uncontrollable,
The need to dream, the need to labor, the need to expect, the need to reach for greater heights,

The future holds different things for different folks, and never the same for all folks,
There is need to live for the future, as it is in most instances better than the past,
Future is the big brother of the past, and the catalyst for hope,
Future would be brighter as long as you work and pray, above all love the moment,
The hope for what is to become is future and the drive for living is future.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
