Treasure Island

Feyisayo Anjorin

(April 29,1983 / Akure, Nigeria)

Johannesburg(II)


The precious is treasured.
Treasures in the heights,
Treasures in the depths;
Know the worthy treasures,
Know the baits of pleasures.

Eyes on glittering stones;
Visions of gold and ghosts,
city lights, the sun that rules the midday sky;
city lights, the moon that shines in the midnight sky.

Vessels of life
With eyes on a prize,
Their sights our lights,
Their lights our guide.

Shine the lights on the gold,
Test the gold and the ghosts,
Never treasure the worthless
in the city of gold.

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
