Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

Life


Do not look
for fairness in this life,
for you will not find it
as the reason to be living
and will seek it forever.

Do not live life
just as a passer by,
or you will not mind it
and it will pass.
without adding true meaning.

Partake in anything
that you can
and make of everything
something great.

Care for others and love greatly
and experience everything,
that life brings to you.

In the end
when all passions
and life is spent,
you will have had it all

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,
