Treasure Island

Mary Jesusa Villegas


Here


The puzzle pieces don't quite fit
There's always a mismatch
And I always get embarrassed.
Why is it that you're all far away
and still making fun of me
Why did I grow miserable and insecure?
How did I do it
And how did I get here?

I had a dream
And all of you showed up
in here.
We're close right now
But our bonds will fade away
soon
Then should I still ask myself
How did I do it
and how did I get here?

When everything's forced up
even my yesterday's smile
and my yesterday's love
for you
and I get fed up
tomorrow
that I should not ask anymore
Why did I do it
and why did I get here.

Why is it that I still love you
and you still don't love me
And I'm tired of
asking myself why
did I do it
and why did I get here?

Why is it that I always have to
catch up with you
and always caution myself with actions
Whenever you're around?
That your silly shadows still linger upon me

Most, why didn't have much fun time with you
Why do I miss you
And now
Everything's covered up
in nostalgia,
mess and total regrets!

Did I do it because I don't know who I am?
Did I get here because I'm just trying too hard?
Did I do it because I don't know who I am?
Did I get here because I'm just trying too hard?

Forgive me. I didn't know myself.
Forgive me. I was just trying too hard.

Why should we even try so hard
Why didn't we know who we are
Why should we even try so hard
Why didn't we know who we are
in the first place.

Everybody asks, 'why? '
Evrybody asks 'how? '
Everbodyy asks why.
Everbody asks how.

Everybody.
Oh. Just,
Everybody.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
