Treasure Island

Thandeka Best

(2nd October,1990 / Barbados)


What's happiness really?
A smile or a laugh,
A simple gesture of emotion.
A simple art of love and devotion.
An act of content and appreciation,
Or just a facial feature of contrast to one's hidden veil.

    happiness is the end of sadness. its a find to what you have been looking for(inside the pit of hell) all your life. some find it, some die for it, some never know it. (Report) Reply

    Nice piece, happiness is what we make out of life...and how we treat it when we have it, fill your heart with it and enjoy that life you've been blessed with.

    Great work, enjoyed reading it.

    Best wishes

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
