Treasure Island

Lila Holmes

If only

If only I could be nicer,
I might have more friends.
If only I could be smarter,
my bad grades would come to an end.
If only I could be braver,
adventures could be endless.
If only I could relax,
I wouldn't be so anxious.
If only I had another pet,
I could be less bored.
If only I had wings,
around the world I could have soared.
If only I liked bugs,
I would be outside much more.
If only I had a personality,
I would be less of a bore.
If only there was more time in the day,
I could be more productive.
If only I wasn't so curious,
I could be less destructive.
If only I wasn't so lazy,
I could be more healthy.
If only I could get a job,
I could be more wealthy.
All though some of these may never come true,
I wouldn't know,
since I've never had a clue.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
