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.

    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.

    Best wishes

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
