Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Left To Go Unaddressed

Attached emotions suppressed to regret,
To allow them effectively depress excessively,
As if to fulfill a need...
Is something one does in a roleplay expected.
And done openly to detect without question.

Anyone knows who has experienced the benefit,
Of what it takes to grow from each stage of life...
That a graduating to accept what takes place next,
Requires acquired pre-requisites.
And that a keeping of emotions condoned but unshown,
Creates more strife one willingly invites.
With a suffering done of a life to live,
Making attempts to impress as a happiness wished...
Is left to go unaddressed!
But yet kept inside to desire.

Instead of prioritizing one's life as a blessing,
Needing no one to validate the existence of it to confirm!
From birth to witness and explore the experience,
Has, if one is observant, is a process already achieved.
One should and could live as if happiness to have,
Is not only a part of this life,
But the only reason we all bloom to blossom to grow.
To then leave behind the evidence,
What has been upon us bestowed to show appreciation...
Had not been taken for granted.

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;
