Treasure Island

Empath In flames

(29.08.1985 / Australia)

[ I walk ]


Trying to live my life,
One step at a time.
Clearing my thoughts
And erasing the human inside.
Each stride takes me further
Away from reality
I see nothing…
But what’s in front of me,

When things get hard
The further I travel
Shadows fall faster
As answers unravel…
This distant land
Sprouts out a home
Freedom comes
The longer I roam.

Like gears for the spirits,
I take control,
Run for the hole
Just “Go, go go! ”
Take a leap,
And jump really far
Holding on deep
For that world to repeat...
I walk…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
