Treasure Island

Brookelyn Walker


Lakeside Veiw of Life


The Lake was aflame in the bright morning sun,
The Trees whispered, telling to run.
I took a step, then another,
Quickened pace in both fear and haste.
The waves lapped at the dock,
I reached the end, a weight holding me.
I heard a voice, faint but bold,
'Wait! 'But it's too late
I fell,
Too fast.
Too far.
Too Hard.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
