Treasure Island

Kasia Fedyk

I never knew but I can paint

I never knew what I wanted to do
I guess you could say
it was a battle within me
maybe to find my self worth
how can I make a difference
how can I change the world
its not the world I need to change
it is myself I need to make

From all the parts I have
paint a picture and present
the colors to all I see
to all I meet in this life
fantasy is creating something
that is beautiful and real
fantasy is what creates the portrait
of my soul
on the canvas of human experience
from the beginning til the end
endless stroke of a brush
in magnificent color combination
that comes to life

I become my own artist
painter of destiny
I can make the sea green
with a blue sky and orange sun
horizon is wide
as the eye can see
and beyond it extends
to its own fantasy
color my soul I do
what else do I need to breathe
have you ever wondered
what colors may come with every breath taken
maybe you can't see it
but you can feel it
portrait of a heart
paint it.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
