Treasure Island

Alison Smith

(22nd February 1957 / Orange, New South Wales, Australia)

I Am A Special Person


Alert but not fully prepared
March down the path of discovery

Anger must not be there

Seeking to find that something
Purposeful all the way
Each step a new horizon
Clear thinking to the end
Instructions there are none
A hand to catch you now
Looking for ever upward

Peace and serenity there
Earning the right to see through
Reasoning a little askew
Searching to know the answer
Opening the door to joy
Now is the time to be real.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
