Treasure Island

Sarah Lord

I Live For The

I live for the feel of the sun on my pale skin
I live for the wind in my hair
I live for the earth under my feet
I live for the sky above my head
I live for the music that inspires me
I live for the words of praise from the people who love me
I live for the friend who never gave up
I ive for the sister who will never betray me
I live for the mother who knows me for me
I live for the father who pushes me forward
I live for the teacher who always believed
I live for the enemy who could never really hate
I live for the future i will bring
I live for the world at my feet
I live for the simple wonders
I live for the embrace of a faithful lover
I live for the faith i will one day find
I live for the sacrifices i will make
I live for the truth behind the lies
I live for the mistakes i have made
I live for the pure human instinct
I live for the people who still need me
I live for the night that consumes me
I live for the end that will one day come
I live for the sake of living
I live because dying would be losing.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
