Treasure Island

Caleb Jones


Keep Your Head Up


School, friends, family, tests & love
Is all part of this game of Life
Created by the Man Upstairs
People will do their best
To try and make you upset
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

No family’s perfect
Everyone fights
Love is a painful lesson
Not everyone will like you
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

People may backstab you
Even if it’s not what they meant to do
Nobody will always tell the truth
Even if the lies are told not to hurt you
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

Schools not for everyone
But everyone’s smart
The things that school may teach you
Might never touch your heart
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

Life is a game
You've got to be strong to win
The hardest things in life
 are…
To learn, love and fight
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

Now I’ve yet to win
But I would imagine
You'll see your whole life at once

And see what was meant for you

And you'll see which life lessons saved you

You can never give in

Keep your head up to win

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
