Treasure Island

Caroline Guedes

(July 27,1982 / Ottawa, Ontario Canada)

Lend me your strength


Please lend me your strength
until I find my own
Without you the pain is amplified
not sure if I can do it on my own

But you tell me I'm strong
and I really do want to believe you
But I need to see it in myself
and that's the hardest thing to do

Lately I've been feeling like a pebble
stagnant and forgotten on the ground
But you could always pick me up
bring me back to the here and now

So please lend me your strength
at least until I find some of my own
without you the pain has multiplied
not sure if I'll survive on my own

But you tell me I'm a fighter
you believe I can conquer anything
this is just a test of my strength
you say I have to find my wings

Where would I be without you
my world would be a twisting labyrinth
but deep down I know I'm stronger than this
through your belief I found my strength

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
