Treasure Island

Get used to it!


Not who you want
Not who you see
Not how you think

Not still the same
Not smiling now
Never a woman
Was just a girl
Not understood
Not listened too
Not the girl
You thought you knew

'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.
