Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

Homeland Is Everythıng


A tree is never too old
To provide shade
Home is a mighty tree
Under whose shade we strive

Homeland is the nest we must return to
When the crowd becomes unfriendly
And the cloud stormy
My heart beat for home

Home is where squirrels knew every farmer
And the owl every hunter
Home is where respect is earn
And labour is dignity

Home is the heart of the people
Where trust is not rust & truth untold
Home is where the heart lays
Homeland is brotherhood

If I should die, think only this of me:

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