Treasure Island

Marthe Claude

What's with the 'if' in life?
Interesting if you ask me

Not so complicated you see....

IF you don't know

IF you want to know

IF you don't understand

IF you need a meaning

IF you seem lost

IF you don't care

IF you want to ignore

IF you want to waste it

IF you want to find it

IF you want to lose it

IF you want to end it

You see the 'if' in life is not that incomprehensible

You see...

If life, then you don't know it, you want to know it, you don't understand it, you need it's meaning, you are lost to it, you don't care for it, you ignore it, you waste it, you find it, you lose it, you end it.

But if and only if it's LIFE

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
