Treasure Island

Anders Lim


Blue lightning flashed across the dark eternal sky
Followed by a roar of thunder charging by
Filled with terror, silver shadows by me slid
Under my resistant barrier, I hid
I peeked out of the my defensive shell
Soldiers marching through the fields full of rebel
Slashed stings on stricken shields
Oh how malignant they were! The combat fields

He stabbed me in my back belt
AH! The excruciating pain I felt
Taking my last breath with my head held high
With tears I fell down with a loud cry
I stared at the heavens up there
A place all places can’t compare
I knew reassuringly I would be there fast
And be freed from my painful past

The world blacked out before my helpless sight
To heaven I yelled with all my might
Dark Death met me in my eyes
And caught my conscience by surprise
For my life could be stolen away like a theft
Its seems that my fate escaped the grip of Death
So here I am, a strong but tainted man
As I wander around my future plan

Looking back to my past on that nasty night
I seemed to recall a glowing light
What was that light? I asked continually
And the more I asked the more I see
On days of darkness which you could not cope
This light represented the utmost hope
It glows majestically in the dark shattering sky
It is one light no man can deny

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
