Treasure Island

I Am Dead


With your stray gaze
you stare at me
wondering why I chose this path
perplexed, I leave you
for I am dead

my deeds become stupefying to you
why sit over me and dialogue?
Why try to remodel my thoughts?
Know you not I live no longer
for I am dead

I remain in my solitary confinement
my past life gone sour
my slate wiped clean
I dare feats you wouldn't dare
I live above the world
though I sojourn here
I am dead to me

For mankind I came
to share love I was made
compassion flows in my blood
call me a crony,
you are right
call me wild,
you are close to the truth
for I am dead to me
but alive in Him

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
