Treasure Island

Giving my fears


Against an attacker I will boldly take my stand
because my heart will show fear for no man
but for a broken heart I run with fright
scared to be blind in a vulnerable night
I believe this fear is in every man
some will acknowledge it others will fail to understand
there is no fear in a shallow heart
because shallow hearts don't fall apart
but feeling hearts that truly care
and fragile to the flow of air
and if I am to be true the I must give
my fragile heart
I may receive great joy or u may return it
ripped apart

    A broken heart can heal with time and determination and you will meet with somebody that will treasure your love.I like the description you write in this poem. (Report) Reply

    Sadly a broken heart can make one feel very vulnerable. I agree with that completely. Standing up to an attacker might not be the best things because is it worth loosing your life over? I think many of us can relate to this one though. Lovely work (Report) Reply

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.
