Treasure Island

Iris Rapoport


Joy


Joy
Is a rope
That is thrown to humans
When they fall in the endless void
Of despair

A rope that makes them hold on
And which is held by their loved ones
Which slowly brings them back up
Up and back on firm ground

Joy will come
So do not wait for it
It will always be there
You will just have to find it…

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
