Treasure Island

I Hang Around

I hang around because I don't,
Have yet the strength to leave;
I hang around and it's so hard,
To hang around and grieve.

I hang around because right here:
I laughed, and loved, and slept;
But all seem now to disappear:
So I hang with who've wept.

I hang around, yet keep in mind:
That I can't hang for long;
I hang in hope to someday find:
The guts to end this song.

I hang around and fake a smile:
To hide how hard it is,
To hang around to just beguile:
A harsh life of unease!

I hang around, I hang around,
I hang around all day,
And when the time does come to go:
I hang some more and pray.

I pray that when around again
I hang, that time's the last:
So I could finally begin,
To, oh, part with the past!

I hang around for one last time,
And bid before I go,
All those who were once close to me:
A mildly fair adieu.

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,
