Treasure Island

poor lil copycat

(02/18/97-Though you may wish me dead I am not yet)

Is It?


Is it perserverance
That makes us strive and achieve success?

Is it guilt
That makes us try again when we give up?

Is it practicality
That makes us learn from our mistakes?

Or is it pigheadedness
When we can't reach success

Or whining
When we feel like giving up

Or carelessness
When we make mistakes we shouldn't have?
~
Is it mercy
That makes a person end the life of a pained and ailing family member?

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
