Treasure Island

Zoe Wyant

(2-2-94 / Chattanooga, Tennessee)

Happiness=open mindedness


There's more to life than this you see,
I'm tired of this monotony
an overdose of similarity
has taken this bordem to a 't'

we change our clothes, our hair, our minds
to somehow entertain our time
we want to fix these tedious lines,
and bring color and shapes into our lives

to free yourself from fixed preconceptions
will point you in a new direction
one that will please you and your peers reflections
toward individuality and personal exemption

    Very nice, Zoe. I think that your poem could depict a kind of endless loop. 'Others' may also have something to do with these desires for change, and the urge for difference may ironically be part of this same externally-mediated drive toward conformity...leading to a desire for change. The fashion industry seems to love this situation. Thanks for the thought-provoking poem. (Report) Reply

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
