Treasure Island

Tori Alana

(September 25 / Boise, Idaho)

I


I stand alone
On the open plain
I’ve weathered
All the sun and rain
And still stood there
Through the pain

People tell me
“You can’t do it.”
I can.
I will stand alone
On that open plain
I will stand alone
Through all the wind and rain

I could stand alone
Forever and never see
Another soul, for the rest
Of my life.
I wouldn’t mind.

I could leave the Earth
Leave it all behind,
But I don’t
I could say
“It’s not worth it.”
But I won’t.

I will stand alone
On that open plain
Waiting to see
What you’re meant to be
And what you can do
To end up where
You’ve always been meant to

I stand alone
As was meant to be
I stand alone
As you can surely see
You can see
Anyone but me
And that’s how it was
Meant to be.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
