Treasure Island

Cassidy Fohs


Joining the Stars


I am a ballon tied down by nerves
Waiting to be free of it all
I wonder when I'm released
Shall I look down in fright as I float up
Or will I think the view is nice
Seeing how I'm afraid of heights I won't
I shall wonder how far I will go until I run out of air
I hope I'll keep floating till I join the stars
I hope then I am once again tied down
But not by stress or nerves but endless peace
Only then will I look down
First with fear of our world
Then with the curiosity of wonders
I shall think and hope one person will notice me
They shall point and say momma look at that
The adult won't understand they blame my presence on imagination
But there I'll be invisible to adults
Exposed to kids who still believe anything's possible
As I look down and watch that's what I'll think too
My string will hang down and kids will say..
One day I'll reach the stars...
And just maybe they will

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

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:
