Treasure Island

In The Minds Of Those Awakening

Separate political affliations,
And a number of religious divisions...
Depicting and in conflict,
What for others is best to accept...
Has yet to be proven a remedy that reflects,
A people who claim they expect to unify...
AND correct,
All that they have done to reject...
Without respecting,
Diversed opinions and those who make decisions...
Based upon their ethnic beliefs they have known to own.
Before outsiders decided 'their' standards created to value,
Will be inflicted to follow with a restricting to not allow...
That which had been in place and peacefully,
To have 'anyone' perceive...
A dismissing to ignore them is going to be easily achieved.
These are not the days,
Delusions can successfully compete with a truth appearing...
In the minds of those awakening with a cleared consciousness.

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,
